MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. – A man was arrested in Madison County after a stand-off with sheriff’s deputies.

According to Sheriff David Woolfork, deputies were trying to serve a criminal subpoena on a woman who was an alleged domestic assault victim. When they went to the home in the 30 block of Medon-Malesus Road just after noon Wednesday, deputies said a person inside refused to open the door.
