Officers stopped a male for traffic violations at 837 W. North Temple Street. Christopher Whitmore, 42, was found to have a full extradition US Marshal warrant. When informed of the warrant he fled in his vehicle. Officers did not pursue. A short time later officers responded to the registered address for Whitmore and found the vehicle in front of the apartment. Whitmore was confronted in front of the apartment but fled into his apartment before he could be apprehended. Whitmore then ran out the back of the apartment holding a large sword. He confronted officers in the back and made several statements that he would not be taken to jail, and that he was ready to die. Whitmore then ran back inside his apartment. Officers created distance and contained the apartment. SWAT was called out, and after several hours of negotiations Whitmore surrendered and was taken into custody without incident. As officers were preparing to transport Whitmore to jail, it appeared he began reacting negatively to some drugs he had ingested prior to his surrender. SWAT officers still on scene administered Narcan and provided medical care until medical responded. Whitmore reacted positively to the Narcan and was then transported to local hospital.
