Man In Custody After Police Standoff At Smyrna Home

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Tenn. – A man who police thought was barricaded inside a Smyrna home for hours on Monday night has been taken into custody.

Gary Moncier, age 44, was charged with four counts of aggravated assault and five counts of reckless endangerment.

Police said there Moncier got into an argument over a computer with family members during a gathering around 8 p.m. at his parents' Almaville Road home. According to police, Moncier was armed, but some family members were able to wrestle the gun away from him. During the struggle, the gun discharged but no one was hit.

Police believed Moncier was left in the house alone after his family members escaped. 

After about four hours of trying to make contact with him, police entered the home to find Moncier was not inside.

Around 2 a.m. Tuesday, Moncier allegedly went back to the home and called for medical assistance after suffering some scratches on his arms.

He was taken to Stone Crest Medical Center, and later released. Moncier was taken to Smyrna Police Department, where he was charged.

He was then transferred to the Rutherford County Jail.

Smyrna Police said he also attacked General Sessions Judge Larry Brandon at the Hobby Lobby in Murfreesboro in May. After the incident, Moncier told NewsChannel 5 that he regretted the attack. Moncier was charged with simple assault and retaliation for a past action. He knew the judge from a foreclosure hearing on his home.
