Evansville Police Stand-Off Ends Peacefully

Around 9 p.m. Wednesday night, police say they attempted to serve an arrest warrant to Damon Maffett at his home near Boeke and Walnut Streets.

Authorities say that Maffett refused to come outside.

Instead, he barricaded himself inside his residence, reportedly telling officers that he had a gun and would use it on them.

A SWAT Team and negotiator were called to the scene.

Shortly before 11:30, police report that tear gas was launched into the home.

At that point, authorities say that Maffett surrendered.

Maffett is currently being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail without bond.
