Missouri Man Charged After Threatening Law Enforcement

Updated:

An Anderson, MO man is charged with resisting arrest and unlawful use of weapon after threatening law enforcement.

The McDonald County Sheriff's Office was called to Indian Creek Campground Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 around 9:05 p.m. about a man making threats towards neighbors with a gun.

George Bishop was allegedly intoxicated and refused to come out of his camper to deputies.  Deputies say made contact with the suspect via cell phone but Bishop would only cuss at them and then hung up.  After several attempts authorities believe that the phone was shut off.

The Special Response Team was deployed and tried to communicate with him through a loud speaker, but Bishop continued to yell profanities saying that law enforcement would have to kill him.

This morning after several hours of trying to get Bishop to come out, deputies used tear gas and SRT forced the doors open.  The 69-year-old was taken into custody.  Deputies found a loaded shotgun next to Bishop.
