Terre Haute Man Arrested After Overnight Standoff

TERRE HAUTE, Ind –  An overnight stand off with Terre Haute City Police has come to a peaceful end.

News 10 reports that it started around 9 p.m. Sunday night at a home on Oakland Avenue and lasted for about 4 hours.

City Police Chief John Plasse says that officers were called to the home when 35-year-old Christopher Blanton fired a gun.

A police robot went into the home first and then officers went in and found Blanton hiding in the attic.

Blanton is being held on charges of criminal recklessness and pointing a firearm.

He will make his first court appearance later today.
