Lake Monticello Standoff Ends Peacefully

23-year-old James Kardos was arrested early this morning, ending a nine-hour standoff at Lake Monticello. A suspect in a domestic assault in Charlottesville, the city resident fled to Lake Monticello, where he holed up in his mother’s home, surrounded by police, the street’s homes evacuated. He fired a gunshot at one point, to no apparent effect, and police later retaliated with a no-more-effect stun grenade. At 1 AM police entered the home and arrested him, and he’s been taken back to Charlottesville and jailed. This is the most excitement at Lake Monticello in a long time.
