A Madison man was arrested after a lengthy standoff on Hazelton Drive following a Saturday hit and run off Highland Colony Parkway.

William J. Barrow II, 51, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to comply with law enforcement, and kidnapping.

Capt. Kevin Newman said that he was evaluated at a local hospital and released back to officers the same day of his arrest before being transported to the Madison County Detention Center.  

Barrow had an initial court appearance on Monday in Madison Municipal Court. He was given a bond of $102,000, with $100,000 for the kidnapping charge and $2,000 for the other two.

“He has posted bond and has been released,” Newman said.

The incident occurred on at approximately 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

Officers responded to a report of a hit and run accident in the parking lot of a business on Highland Colony Parkway near Highway 463. 

Through an investigation, officers were able to trace the suspect vehicle to a residence on Hazelton Drive in Madison. 

Upon officers’ arrival on Hazelton Drive, they observed the suspect vehicle in the driveway of the residence. Officers also encountered near the residence a female who they believed to have been the earlier occupant of the vehicle.  



She advised officers she was held briefly against her will by the driver in the residence. 

She told officers on the scene that after several attempts to leave the residence and being stopped she finally was able to leave via a side garage door and flee the house. 

Officers attempted to make contact with the subject at the residence but he would not come to or open the door.  

After several attempts to contact the subject via telephone failed, members of the Special Response Team gained entry to the house through the front door.  

The suspect was arrested without incident in the living room of the residence. Due to his appeared state of impairment at the time of his arrest, as a precaution, the subject was transported by emergency medical technicians to a local hospital for evaluation.
