Mental patient near Yacht Club creates standoff
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office with the assistance of the Ridgeland Police Department responded to a call involving a mental patient at or near the Jackson Yacht Club off of Yacht Club Road on the Reservoir Friday morning.
Police Chief John Neal said that his department assisted but that he did not have much further information as it was a Sheriff’s Office matter.
“Sheriff’s office had a mental patient call we assisted with but it was their call,” Neal said.
The incident lasted about two hours. Ridgeland officials say they were called to the scene about 10:30 a.m. and cleared the scene at 12:35 p.m.
