A Baltimore blogger and internet broadcaster aired his standoff with police Saturday night as a SWAT team stood outside his house.
According to The Baltimore Sun, police went to Frank James MacArthur’s home Saturday to serve an outstanding warrant from from a 2009 gun case against him. MacArthur insisted throughout the broadcast on his website, Baltimore Spectator, that he was not notified about the warrant before the Baltimore Police Department brought the tactical team to his home.
The broadcast has included MacArthur’s phone conversation with a police negotiator who attempted to convince him to exit and talk to investigators. MacArthur said he is airing the discussion because he fears for his life.
