A 19-year-old man with multiple warrants is in jail after a SWAT standoff in Gwinnett County.

The standoff happened Sunday morning in a neighborhood off Thompson Mill Road.

While the standoff took place Sunday, officials say the incident began on Friday, after police were investigating a hit-and-run that occurred in Gwinnett County.

When they got to the home on the 4600 block of Arden Drive, the owner of the car told police that her brother, identified as Nathan Workman, and the car were missing. The car was later found in front of another home, and police obtained one warrant.

On Sunday, officers say a man called police to report a domestic dispute between his daughter and Workman, her boyfriend. While officers were talking to the man, a 911 call was made from the Arden Drive home where Workman lives, saying that he was armed inside the home and threatening to shoot officers.

Officers arrived at the home and were able to get all of the family members out safely.

According to Gwinnett County police, the family told them that Workman may have been doing drugs and would not let his girlfriend out of a car when she asked to leave earlier that weekend.

After several hours, Workman surrendered and was arrested.

Officials say he is facing warrants for theft by taking (motor vehicle), aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Additional charges are possible.
