Police standoffs with soldiers at Fort Carson lead to two separate arrests


Military police in Ft. Carson are trying to figure out what led to two separate standoffs on base yesterday.

Sunday afternoon, the first incident occurred at Pawnee Village– a military housing neighborhood for E1-E6 pay grades on base where witnesses say military police and a Special Reaction Team were on scene.

Just hours later, another soldier barricaded himself inside a home just a few streets away, KRDO reported.  Both soldiers were arrested.

A spokeswoman from Fort Carson’s Media Affairs Office told Popular Military that both situations were resolved without incident.

The two cases were unrelated — the timing and similarities between them were just a coincidence, she said.

The names of the soldiers have not been released and it’s still unclear what led them to barricade  themselves inside the homes.

The US Army installation, located near Colorado Springs, is home to the 4th Infantry Division  and the 10th Special Forces Group.

According to their website, Fort Carson “prepares trained and ready expeditionary forces for deployment in support of Combatant Commander requirements” and “provides first class support to soldiers and families.”
