Police: ‘High risk’ Rock Hill suspect required SWAT team

Police considered a man facing drug charges holed up inside his mother’s home in a Rock Hill neighborhood last month a “high-risk” suspect, making it necessary for a 12-member SWAT team to break down a door to arrest him. The parents of two men directly involved in the arrest question whether the large police response was necessary, given that authorities were serving a warrant on a man who didn’t appear in court on drug charges, “not a violent crime.”
