CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Law enforcement officials are investigating an incident in North Charlotte involving a suspect wanted for a probation violation.

Authorities originally spotted 29-year-old Montez Gaddy as a passenger in a red Ford Mustang near a home in the 2900 block of Edison Street.

After a traffic stop, two women in the car got out of the vehicle and Gaddy drove off, according U.S. Marshals, to avoid being arrested.

Gaddy allegedly sideswiped a U.S. Marshal as he fled. Police say a Mecklenburg deputy was also involved in a minor crash as Gaddy drove away. Neither official was seriously hurt.

Officials say the man barricaded himself inside a residence on Woodstone Drive during the pursuit.

After about two hours, U.S. Marshals were able to talk him out with the help of his girlfriend.

He doesn't know what sgoing on but there's a million police out here and he was scared they were going to hurt him, she told NBC Charlotte. I talked him out of there. He was scared.

Gaddy was released from prison about a year ago after serving time for weapons charges. He was wanted on federal and state charges, including probation violation, possession of a firearm by a felon and resisting arrest.

He has been booked into Mecklenburg County Jail.

Neighbors were all advised to stay in their homes as officials attempted to arrest Gaddy. No one was hurt.
