A Leitchfield man was arrested Monday following a standoff with multiple law enforcement agencies in Clarkson.

At around 8 a.m. Monday morning, Clarkson Police Officer Rick Clemons responded to a report of a domestic disturbance at 115 Spring St. that had been called in to Clarkson City Hall.

Upon arrival, Clemons said he noticed two male subjects on the porch of the residence, and, as he approached them, one, 33-year-old Owen Breeden, of Leitchfield, drew a large, fixed-blade knife and threatened him.

Clemons then backed away, took cover, and called for assistance, and the Leitchfield Police Department, Grayson County Sheriff's Office, and Kentucky State Police responded to assist.

According to Clemons, Breeden ignored officers' requests to put the weapon down and continued to threaten all officers "with bodily harm and death."

After about an hour, Clemons said, officers were able to take Breeden down with physical contact, and he was tased and arrested.

Breeden was lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center on the charges of wanton endangerment, first degree - police officer; terroristic threatening, third degree; menacing; domestic abuse; and resisting arrest.

After officers handcuffed Owen Breeden, his brother, Phillip Breeden, attempted to intervene in the arrest, Clemons said.

Phillip Breeden sustained a leg injury during the altercation with law enforcement and was transported from the scene by Grayson County EMS to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center for treatment. He was cited to court by the GCSO following the incident, according to Clemons.
