Man arrested after Kansas parole office disturbance

KSAL StaffDecember 8, 2013

A man involved in a disturbance at a state parole office in downtown Wichita is in custody after spending two hours perched outside a second-floor window.

The Wichita Eagle  reports that a standoff with authorities ended Friday with the man falling to the sidewalk. Wichita police Lt. E.J. Bastian says a canopy broke the man’s fall. After being taken to a hospital for evaluation, the man was booked into Sedgwick County Jail on an allegation of criminal damage to property.

Bastian says the man appeared to be “high” when he went to the parole office to get help with substance addiction. The man is accused of jumping over a counter, grabbing a coat stand and breaking out a window to get to the ledge.

No staff members were injured.
