DELAWARE COUNTY, Pa. (YC) – A Collingdale man now faces a number of additional charges after holding a standoff with police.

The incident happened just after 4:30 p.m. on MacDade Boulevard.

Delaware County Sheriffs were in the process of serving an arrest warrant when the unexpected happened — the man unwilling to go to jail threw Molotov cocktails at them.

With only two sheriffs serving an arrest warrant, the original crime most likely was not serious. However, the defendant will now face numerous additional charges.

The deputy suffered second degree burns to his upper leg and foot. He was taken to Crozer Chester Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect then barricaded himself inside the home. A brief standoff ensued with police eventually coaxing the man to surrender around an hour later.

A handful of homes were evacuated and MacDade Boulevard was shutdown for hours before the bomb squad brought out more evidence and gave the all clear.

When the home was searched following the standoff, police confirmed tactical teams discovered five to seven more Molotov Cocktails assembled in suspects home, and ready to be lit and thrown.
