Police keep guns after attempt to stage standoffFebruary 28, 2019
By The Associated Press
EVANSVILLE — A judge says police may keep guns seized from a man accused of trying to stage a police standoff in southwestern Indiana.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports Evansville police seized ten guns, ammunition and shotgun parts from 67-year-old Kenneth Haynie Jr.
Vanderburgh County Superior Court Judge Robert Pigman on Tuesday granted the department’s petition to keep the guns.
Police say they got a tip from Haynie’s family Feb. 16 that he was mentally unstable and talked about starting a confrontation with police. The next day, Haynie allegedly called 911 and falsely claimed he was holding a woman hostage.
The state had to prove Haynie might be a risk to himself or others and suffered from mental illness. Court records say Haynie’s attorney admitted to the allegations on Haynie’s behalf.
