RALEIGH, N.C (WNCN/CBS News) — When Amazon guarantees delivery, it means it — especially in North Carolina.
A TikTok video posted March 18 shows an Amazon driver walking up to a Raleigh house to deliver a package, but swerving through a swarm of police cars to do so, CBS News reported. The video also shows officers along the street in an apparent standoff.
Officers are visibly surprised once they notice the man attempting to deliver the package. Once police realize what he is attempting to do, they approach him, ask him to stop and take the package from him, the video shows.
The video then shows the Amazon driver walking back to his car — but not before he takes a picture, to prove it was delivered.
The video shows more than half a dozen Raleigh police cars visible at the standoff scene when the drop-off was made.
The Raleigh Police Department said Tuesday it responded to a domestic call in the 4900 block of Long Pier Lane to exercise an active warrant of Texas. The suspect at the home “prevented other occupants from exiting the residence.”
Raleigh police said they established a perimeter around the residence “due to safety concerns” and began negotiations. This is what the Amazon delivery driver walked up on.
The suspect, David Lonnell Sanders, 30, was eventually arrested after de-escalation tactics for the outstanding warrant and charged with false imprisonment and assault on a female.
“Amazon hard at work,” the person who recorded the video is heard saying. “In the midst of a standoff, he’s going to deliver his package.”
As of Monday, the video has more than 7 million views.
CBS 17 is in the process of requesting the TikTok video.
