Wichita man claiming to be ninja arrested after standoff

June 30, 2011


— A 62-year-old Wichita man who claimed to be a ninja is being evaluated after a three-hour standoff with Sedgwick County deputies in which a SWAT team sent tear gas into the home.

The Wichita Eagle reports deputies were trying to take the man into custody around 4 p.m. Wednesday after receiving a court order because he was believed to be a threat to himself or others.

When deputies tried to take him into custody, the man started waving a stick at them and backed into the home, where deputies believed he might have weapons.

A SWAT team used tear gas inside the home just before 7:30 p.m. after sheriff's negotiators were unable to coax the man outside.

The man surrendered and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Maybe he was just getting ready for the upcoming ninja/pirate global war.
