In April, Easterday reportedly shot Fairborn police Sgt. Bill Titley in the arm, prompting a standoff that lasted nearly seven hours.

Police responded to Easterday’s home on Archer Drive in Fairborn around 10:30 p.m. after they received a report of shots fired.

When police went up to the home, Easterday reportedly fired one shot from inside, which hit Titley in the arm.

Police fired tear gas into the home around 2:30 a.m. and went inside and arrested Easterday around 5 a.m.

Titley was treated at a local hospital and released.

Easterday was indicted on attempted aggravated murder, attempted murder and felonious assault charges last April.
