STOCKTON — A man who refused to to comply with Post Release Community Supervision was arrested shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday.

According to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, Ronnie Young created a Facebook post stating that he was not going to go back to prison, and when officers came for him he would take out as many as he could.

He also posted photos of what appeared to be a bulletproof vest, a weapon that looked like an assault rifle and ammunition, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators with the Sheriff’s Office, Manteca and Stockton police departments located Young at the Red Roof Inn and evacuated the building. Young spoke with hostage negotiators and eventually surrendered. No weapons were located in the room, the Sheriff’s Office said.
