Cops: Wanted, Armed Egg Harbor Township Man Arrested; Facing Multiple Charges
Cops say a man from Egg Harbor Township, who was wanted on several warrants, was arrested on Sunday after he was Taser'd by officers who were called to check on a person who was possibly armed.
The scene unfolded just after 2:00 Sunday afternoon at a home on Ivins Avenue, according to the Egg Harbor Township Police Department. There,
...officers encountered Prentis Blaylock, 34 years of age from Egg Harbor Township, who was wanted on several warrants. Mr. Blaylock was uncooperative with officers, exhibited threatening behavior and was armed with a handgun. After negotiating with Blaylock for several minutes for him to surrender peacefully and having no success, a Taser was deployed and Mr. Blaylock was taken into custody without further incident.
Blaylock has been charged with possession of a handgun, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, possession of hollow-point bullets, possession of a large-capacity magazine, eluding, and obstruction. He also had a no-bail warrant for a domestic violence incident that took place in Egg Harbor Township and another warrant for fraud and theft by deception out of Gloucester County.
Blaylock was treated at an area hospital and is currently being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
