A MAN tasered in a police stand-off at his house in Deighton has appeared at Leeds Crown Court.
Christopher Fahey, of Leeds Road, Huddersfield, appeared in court accused of affray and possession of offensive weapons – an axe and a kitchen knife – in a public place.
The 32-year-old faces a further allegation of recklessly endangering life by arson.
The case was adjourned for a plea and case management hearing on September 3.
Fahey was granted bail.
At an earlier hearing, the court was told Fahey was allegedly involved in a siege at the property in the early hours of Sunday June 17.
Officers were called to the house near to Old Fieldhouse Lane, Deighton, after an incident there escalated.
Officers then used a Taser on Fahey to end the stand-off.
Fahey, who was described as having severe mental problems, did not enter a plea to the charges.
He was also banned from contacting prosecution witnesses and entering Huddersfield except to see his solicitor.
Fahey remains on police bail.
