A 25-year-old Las Vegas man was arrested and charged with firearm and narcotics violations following a two-hour standoff on Gradeur Avenue early Wednesday morning, according to Altadena Sheriff Capt. Christopher Reed.Reed said that deputies tried to stop a vehicle driven by Malcolm Neuman-Sample, 25, for vehicle code violations.  Neuman-Sample “refused all deputies’ commands” to get out of the car, Reed said.

Reed said that deputies ended up using “non-lethal munitions” — which he described as a rubber bullet — to break the car window and pepper-spray Neuman-Sample into submission.  Reed said that the suspect was not injured.

A witness emailed AltadenaPoint that several cars pinned in the suspect’s vehicle on the 3000 block of Grandeur Avenue for about two hours.    The confrontation began at 2:10 AM, and Neuman-Sample was finally taken in at 4:05 AM, Reed said.

Neuman-Sample was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of narcotics for sale, and transportation of narcotics for sales.  He is being held at the Crescenta Valley sheriff station on $50,000 bail.

A search of public records shows a Malcolm J. Neuman-Sample, born in 1990, was arrested in Clark County, Nevada, on drug charges, possession of a gun with an altered or removed serial number, and domestic violence on Aug. 8, 2012.
