CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A preliminary hearing originally set for today has been postponed in the case of the Chambersburg man involved in a police standoff last Tuesday that began as a hostage situation.
Police charged Terry L. Brown, 50, of 439 W. Queen St., on July 16 with unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, simple assault, reckless endangerment, and resisting arrest, all misdemeanors.
Brown, a truck driver, was released Friday from Franklin County Prison, where he had been held on $35,000 bond.
Chambersburg Police ended the nine-hour standoff after firing tear gas into the West Queen Street home where Terry Brown's estranged wife, Barbara Brown, earlier had been held hostage, police said.
