Standoff In Mendon Ends With Arrest
By: Mike Stiles - Tuesday, September 20, 2022

MENDON, MI - A standoff in Mendon ended early Sunday morning with the arrest of a man, who police say was also involved in a crash last weekend in Three Rivers.

​St. Joseph County Sheriff Mark Lillywhite says his department was sent to a house in the 200 block of Lane Avenue near Mendon Elementary School, around 7 PM Saturday to investigate an alleged domestic assault. Deputies went into the house to talk to the possible suspect, identified as Terrell Reese. However, officers noticed Reese fidgeting with a safe and they also saw bullets on the floor.
​When deputies left the house, they reportedly heard shots fired. No one was injured.

​Lillywhite says his department set up a perimeter around the house along with the Three Rivers, Sturgis, White Pigeon and Colon Police Departments and the Michigan State Police.

​Just before midnight, Lillywhite says officers shot tear gas into the house, and Reese was taken into custody a short time later. Reese was being sought by officers after he was involved in an incident in the early morning hours of September 10, when a car crashed into a building in downtown Three Rivers that housed PinUp Salon.

​Reese, who was injured in the crash, was taken to Sturgis Hospital by Life Care Ambulance to be treated. He was then taken to the St. Joseph County Jail.
