Baltimore Blogger Webcasts his Standoff with SWAT Team


On Saturday night, Frank James MacArthur, author of the Baltimore Spectator and “Baltimore’s premier independent crime correspondent and street reporter” (well, according to his own blog), barricaded himself in his home as a SWAT team stood outside, ready to bust in. And, in true blogger form, MacArthur live-broadcasted the whole incident — the negotiations with the tactical team, his own claims that the police were sure to kill him, and his eventual surrender.
