Madison County Man Flees Traffic Stop and Barricades Himself in Home

The police in Madison County certainly had their hands full this week. They tried to pull a man over on a routine traffic stop when he took off. Tyrell Fisher took off and fled from the police on March 18, 2020. Fisher had a warrant out already and that is probably why he fled the police. The police did not have to look far to find their suspect. He actually fled and went right to his house. They knew where he lived because he had an active warrant.

Tyrell Fisher has a history of running from law enforcement. He had been arrested back in 2016 in Idaho Falls for various parole violations. At that time, he fled the police as well. This time, however, he fled to his home at North 4000 West Street in the Hibbard area. Apparently, it was his grandmother’s home as well. He barricaded himself in the house and refused to come out.

After lengthy negotiations, Fisher agreed to come out peacefully. He was taken into custody and transported to the Madison County jail. He is now facing a slew of criminal charges, including:

  • Felony agent’s warrant
  • Felony second-degree kidnapping
  • Felony eluding an officer
  • Misdemeanor assault and battery against a police officer

While it may sound extreme, the fact that he barricaded himself inside his house with his grandmother in there is enough to charge him with kidnapping. 

The fact that Fisher was already on parole and has now been hit with a bunch of felony charges does not bode well for him. He will likely be facing several more years in prison. There have not been any hearings scheduled for him as of yet. This may be delayed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
