PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A man was arrested after an all night stand-off with sheriff’s deputies and Kentucky State Police. 

It started around 8 p.m. Tuesday on Woods Road in Nancy.

Officials say they responded to a domestic dispute involving 55-year-old Ange M. Lane and his estranged wife, 42-year-old Nicole Lane.

Nicole had fled from the residence to a neighbor’s house after allegedly being assaulted by her Ange at their residence. The victim of the assault also advised deputies, that Ange threatened to kill her and any law enforcement officer if she called the police. She also advised that he was heavily armed.

According to a press release, EMS personnel treated Nicole at the neighbor’s residence for lacerations to the head and various other indications of having been beaten. She was transported to Lake Cumberland Hospital for treatment of her injuries.

Deputies secured the area around the residence and Ange reportedly refused repeated requests from officers to exit his home and surrender.

Ange, as well as his 16-year-old son and a female acquaintance, 32-year-old Amber Adams remained in the residence.

The stand-off with Ange continued through the night until the sheriff’s department contacted KSP for additional assistance.

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, members of the KSP Special Response Team (SRT) arrived on scene to assist deputies and troopers.

Around 2:20 pm Wednesday a pickup truck occupied by Adams and the juvenile left the residence. Officials conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle on Highway 761. Both occupants were interviewed and taken into protective custody.

Officials say they returned to the residence where Ange exited the trailer and began a dialog with them. Members of the KSP SRT were able to fire rubber rounds that temporarily disabled Ange, who was armed with multiple firearms. He was quickly disarmed and placed under arrest.

Reportedly, over 20 guns were recovered from the residence after the incident.

Ange was transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital for treatment of minor injuries sustained during the apprehension. He was later lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center on the following charges: first-degree assault and third-degree terroristic threatening. Additional charges are forthcoming.
