Placeholder Image
A Gainesville man charged with terroristic threats, criminal damage to property and reckless conduct had his first appearance before a Hall County magistrate judge on Wednesday. Justin Talton, 31, opted not to have a probable cause hearing, and a date for his arraignment, at which he’ll enter a plea, has not been set. Talton was in a standoff with Gainesville police inside his motel room at Motel 6 off U.S. 129 for more than three hours Tuesday.
