Paoli man arrested after six-hour police standoff


State police say a southern Indiana man has been arrested after a six-hour standoff that began when he fired several shots at family members.
Officers were called late Thursday to the rural home outside the Orange County town of Paoli.
State police Sgt. Philip Hensley says the gunshots drove family members from the house, but none were injured. He says that 54-year-old David Coleman barricaded himself inside the house some 40 miles south of Bloomington and refused to come outside until about 5 a.m. Friday.
Coleman has been jailed on preliminary charges of attempted murder and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.
