TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The man at the center of two police standoffs faces a multitude of charges after his court appearance.
Christopher Bays was arrested twice on separate standoffs at a home at 9th and Seabury Streets. On Monday, he was arrested on a warrant for attempted aggravated battery and attempted battery by means of a deadly weapon.
However, the Vigo County Prosecutor’s Office has elected to try Bays on drug-related charges, which were filed in connection to the standoffs. Bays is also charged with dealing and possessing meth, unlawful possession of a firearm and maintaining a common nuisance.
His trial will take place in February.
