Indy man sentenced to 4 years in prison

An Indianapolis man who barricaded himself in a motel room and threatened to shoot police officers will spend four years in prison.

Geoffrey A. Lacava, 33, pleaded guilty to six charges in two cases and was sentenced to prison time last week.

In May 2013, Greenwood SWAT officers had a three-hour standoff with Lacava at the Red Carpet Inn-Fanta Suites motel near Main Street and Emerson Avenue. Lacava blocked the door with a mattress and furniture and said he had an assault rifle and would shoot police if they tried to get into the room.
