Local News

CLINTON, Utah (News4Utah) – A man who reportedly called Clinton Police and asked them get into a shootout with him, has been arrested.

On Monday morning people who live near 2058 North 1300 West were told to “shelter in place” while SWAT and Clinton Police worked to deescalate the situation. 

According to Clinton Police Chief Bill Chilson, when officers arrived to the home, Wayne Lindley, 60, was walking in and out of the garage with what appeared to be a rifle and a handgun.

Chilson told News4Utah that Lindley yelled obscenities at the officers and then asked to speak with them about a past incident he had with the Division of Natural Resources.

Chilson eventually walked out of the home, placed his weapons on the ground, laid on the driveway and surrendered peacefully, officials said.

Lindley’s mother was also inside the home but police were able to safely remove her from the situation.

He was taken into custody and will face charges.
