Arlington Man Arrested Following Friday Standoff

4/1/19 – 5:16 A.M.

Hancock County sheriff’s deputies arrested an Arlington man following a standoff that lasted more than four hours late last week. The incident started just after 1:30 p.m. Friday when deputies tried to serve an order of detention to 29-year-old Andrew Huffman of 319 East Liberty Street.

Deputies say Huffman refused to go with them and barricaded himself in his home with a knife. No one else was in the home at the time. Deputies negotiated with the man over the phone, but he refused to come out.

Around 5:30 p.m. deputies broke windows out of the home and fired tear gas into it. They were able to arrest Huffman without any other issues.
