Assuming they have the right guy, and given the nature of the incident that's a fair assumption, why on earth has he not been remanded ? An 'armed siege' suggests that he is a danger to the community regardless of they other alleged offences.

Well it's a bit boring being in a police cell for the next 2 months. If I was him, I'd flee country.

Thats one mighty show of strength for a few cannapiss plants and some criminal damage, a bit of community service and a £90 fine at the end of the tunnel no doubt.
