A North Judson man who prompted a call to the SWAT team in August will be sentenced in Starke Circuit Court this morning.

Hanley “Warren” Chapman was arrested in August on charges of Criminal Recklessness as a Class C Felony and Resisting Law Enforcement as a Class D Felony. Chapman’s stepson called police after Chapman reportedly fired three shots into the floor in his home in his brother-in-law’s presence. The Pulaski County SWAT Team was called to respond to the home and attempted to get him out of the home to no avail.

The SWAT Team deployed gas into the residence. After a brief waiting period, entry was made into the home. It was later determined that Chapman was in a small block room in the basement. A round of tear gas was fired into that room and Chapman was found in the room and taken into custody.

After a consent to search, the weapon, a Ruger 40 Caliber handgun, was located. He was then taken into custody.

Chapman will be sentenced at 9 a.m. CT in Starke Circuit Court.
