 width=Following last week’s police standoff with a Taylorville man, Dennis Adams, Taylorville Mayor Greg Brotherton is grateful and appreciative of the hard work put in by the Taylorville Police Department, Christian County Sheriff’s Office, and the Illinois State Police which ended the standoff in a non-violent manner.

As Brotherton explains, the situation could have been much worse than what it was, but through the agencies’ hard work, this situation was able to be diffused in a safe and orderly fashion, allowing for just to prevail.

Adams appeared in court on Monday morning to face charges of two counts of attempted murder in the first degree. He is set to reappear in court on Thursday when the Christian County State’s Attorney’s office will make a motion for bail to be denied.
