Montgomery Police Charge Prattville Man in Hostage Situation


By CBS 8 News

Montgomery police say they've arrested 40-year-old David Spigner of Prattville in connection with an early morning hostage situation at a business on Lower Wetumpka Road.

Police say they've charged Spigner with second-degree kidnapping and two counts of menacing. He is being held under bonds totaling $200,000.

Police say at approximately 7:40 a.m. Monday, Spigner entered the business where his estranged wife works. Officers say he allowed other employees to leave, but refused to allow his wife to go.

Police negotiators got him to surrender just before 9:00 a.m.

I know this guy personally and he has always been like this, very violent to women. If they dont stop him he is going to hurt someone really bad. He needs to be locked up for good!

I've worker with David for a couple of years , I've never seen Him get ever upset during long nights on the job . He's hard working and friendly , there's two sides to every argument . What He did was stupid and with weapons it's 10x more stupid . Thank-you JESUS no one was hurt . I pray for justice to be done , not pay-back or vengeance . Being pushed to the limit is no excuse for bad behavior .

I also know this man and I know how violent he can get! He has been unstable for a very long time, I'm so thankful no one was injured or worse.
