Wichita 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.
