In April Chisolm was charged with fleeing police and endangering the welfare of a child after he barricaded himself in his apartment in the 2100 block of Cedar Run Drive in Lower Allen Township. Chisolm had an active warrant for a parole violation, which he was notified of back in March 2022.
Chisolm then jumped out of a third-story window, which left his son alone with the window open. Chisolm then ran into the woods. Multiple law enforcement agencies started to search the area, where he was then taken into custody at the end of Orchard Road.
Chisolm was transported to the Cumberland County Prison and was unable to post bail.
