SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A man who was taken into custody after a SWAT situation in May was indicted on related charges.

Larry Hicks, 46, of Tyler was indicted on an assault against a public servant charge and an unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon charge, according to judicial records. He was indicted by a Smith County Grand Jury on August 8.

According to the Smith County Sheriff's Office, Hicks was taken into custody on May 21 after he barricaded himself within a residence after a parole officer went to check on why his security ankle bracelet had stopped working.

When the officer approached Hicks to look for the bracelet, Hicks pushed the officer out of the house and locked himself inside, the sheriff's office reported. The officer then called 911.

SWAT surrounded the house, working to negotiate with the man to come out. He was taken into custody after about an hour and a half of negotiating.

Hicks remains in the Smith County Jail. His collective bond is set at $250,000.
