Haverford Man Who Had Standoff with Police Pleads Guilty
The man threatened to shoot officers during a three-hour long standoff in April.
A Haverford man who had a three-hour standoff with police in April, during which he threatened officers with a handgun, plead guilty to assault charges on Tuesday, the Main Line Times is reporting.
According to the paper, the Assistant DA and the attorney for Christopher Mobley, 36, worked out a plea agreement for the West Hillcrest Avenue resident. Mobley plead guilty to three counts of aggravated assault before Judge Kevin Kelly, all first-degree felonies.
On April 21, Mobley got in an argument with his mother in the home they live in together. When police arrived—his ten-year-old son ran to a neighbor’s house to call 911—Mobley barricaded himself in the house and threatened to shoot the officers. Police later determined the handgun he brandished was unusable.
Before Mosley was forced out of the home with teargas and apprehended, police blocked off the road, partially evacuated the area, and called in a special response unit and crisis negotiation team.
