He was armed and on his garage roof as police surrounded his Newport home. Now, Derick Niles, 36, wants a reckless endangerment charge dropped. His lawyer says the state cannot prove that anyone was ever in imminent danger of harm. The state disagrees. A judge is reviewing the motions.

Niles is also charged with disorderly conduct for the September incident.
