Man who shot at police SWAT team faces judge

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The man facing the most serious charges during a narcotics raid by Louisville Metro police has been arraigned.

A plea of not guilty was entered for Walter Lee Hudson, Jr., 37, of Louisville, on four counts of wanton endangerment along with one count each of cultivating marijuana, trafficking in marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance (meth).

Hudson, along with three other adults and two juveniles, were arrested at a home in the 1300 block of Vim Drive late Monday after LMPD searched a narcotics search warrant.

As members of the LMPD SWAT team entered the home, Hudson fired a shot that struck the living room floor about four feet in from of the officers. No one was injured and police did not return fire. Hudson's attorney said his client believed a home invasion was in progress and that's why he fired the shot.

A request to lower Hudson's $100,000 cash bond was denied.  He will be back in court September 7.
