— 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.

Every time it gets a little bit hot outside and the cousins stay up to late cause that is the only time cool enough to do some good still work...well this kind of thing happens from time to time. Besides, at his age at least he could have thought he was Master Po or something.

He used to claim he was Chuck Norris...but when Chuck started doing that exercise contraption commercial with Christie Brinkley this guy was disgusted and had to assume a new identity...and Wichita IS the ninja capiatal of the western world...
