LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Tippecanoe County prosecutors have charged a Lafayette man, more than nine months after a SWAT situation.

Police and DCS were called to his home on South 18th Street in June of 2018. They were there after prosecutors said a drug screen for a child in the house tested positive for methamphetamine.

Ferguson refused to allow officers to take the child, according to court documents. They say Ferguson then pointed a firearm at one of the officers.

The officers on scene called for backup and they set up a perimeter. The situation eventually ended peacefully.
