Four hour police standoff ends in arrest

Posted:
WACO -

A police standoff at a McLennan County home that lasted more than four hours is now over.

Police say it all started when they tried arresting 36-year-old Christopher Deleon around 11 p.m. Wednesday. Officers say Deleon led them on a chase in a stolen pick-up truck starting in Woodway and crashed his vehicle near the Southwind Apartments in Waco.

He then abandoned the stolen truck near Richter and Daughtry and fled by foot. Deleon barricaded himself inside a home at 1912 Howard Street.

Occupants of the home knew the suspect and allowed him inside. Officers surrounded the home and were able to remove the other occupants in the home other than Deleon. Witnesses advised police that Deleon was armed with a handgun. Patrol officers called for the SWAT and Negotiation teams to help.

Deleon refused to talk to negotiators throughout the early morning hours causing the SWAT team to have to use chemical munitions in an attempt to remove him from the home.

SWAT officers made entry into the home and found Deleon hiding inside. He resisted arrest causing officers to use a taser on him. He was taken into custody and transported to McLennan County Jail.

DeLeon was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, evading arrest and driving with an invalid license.

Police charged him later with aggravated assault after he attacked a 34-year-old male on Christmas Eve in the 2500 block of Cleveland with two metal pipes. The victim tried to get Deleon to leave the property, but was hit in the head with a tire jack handle and metal pipe when the victim turned to walk away.

Waco police also recovered a stolen Ford F150 attached with stolen license plates after the incident.
