DENHAM SPRINGS- A downtown chase of two armed men turned into a standoff Monday morning as one of the men sat atop the Capital One Bank building, smoked cigarettes and cleaned a pistol in sight of a Sheriff's Special Response team, authorities said.
The second suspect, whom deputies captured during the initial pursuit, kicked through a sheriff's vehicle window and led authorities on a second chase, Livingston Parish Sheriff Willie Graves said.
