By Web Staff – email

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) –   Residents in a south Columbus apartment complex had a scare Saturday morning.

Police blocked off the entire complex at Southside Court around 11 AM because of a man they were told was barricaded inside his own apartment.

The man had warrants out for his arrest on misdemeanor charges.

Police later found out the tip was false and the man was not even home.

However traffic was stopped for hours going in and out of the complex.
