PINELLAS PARK - Pinellas Park Police officers responded to a domestic disturbance Dec. 16 at a residence on 66th Street N. in Pinellas Park that led to a man being taken into protective custody.

While en route to the home, reports were received that Terry Chestnut, 37 was armed with a handgun and may have shot himself inside of his vehicle. Upon arrival, officers found the vehicle empty and Chestnut nowhere in sight.

Fearing that Chestnut was armed and unstable more resources were called in and area schools were placed on lock down. Pinellas Park Police Department deployed a K-9 team to find Chestnut. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office was asked to assist with aviation support.

At 2:17, the K-9 team as well as other officers located Chestnut. Chestnut was still believed to be armed and was challenged to show his hands. Chestnut refused to follows the lawful commands of the officers and a Taser was deployed to take Chestnut into custody. Chestnut did not resist officers after the Taser was deployed, according to the police report.

Chestnut was taken into protective custody for involuntary mental health evaluation. Charges of resisting arrest without violence and violation of a domestic violence injunction will be routed to the states attorney office.

Area schools were notified that the subject was in custody. No injuries reported during this incident.
