Bernardsville resident Samuel Medway, sentenced earlier this month to six years in state prison on a conviction of charges for selling an Uzi weapon to an undercover agent, has received additional jail time after a guilty plea in Bernardsville municipal court regarding last summer's SWAT standoff with authorities, the municipal prosecutor said. While living on Anderson Hill Road, Medway was reportedly served in June with papers regarding unpaid child support. He barricaded himself in his home, as authorities—reportedly unsure whether he had a hostage and a weapon—called in a county SWAT team and evacuated residents living in the vicinity. He gave himself up quietly a few hours later, borough police said. He reportedly pled guilty to obstruction of justice in Bernardsville municipal court.
