Coventry Police involved in Overnight Stand-Off

A peaceful end to an overnight scare in Coventry, as police are able to talk out a barricaded suspect.

Police responded to a Woodland Drive apartment around 10p.m. Saturday, to investigate a harassing phone call complaint.

The suspect 42-year-old Christopher Chappell, barricaded himself inside the apartment, threatening to shoot any officer that tried to get in.

Police tell ABC6 News that it took four-and-a-half hours to finally talk him out.

Chappell was brought to Kent Hospital for a mental evaluation, and has yet to be charged with anything.
