LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP)  An Indiana woman has been charged with using her five children as a human shield against police searching her home for a man wanted on a warrant for violating parole in Arkansas.
 
    The Journal & Courier reports 33-year-old Rachelle Billups was released on bond from Tippecanoe County Jail in Lafayette Friday after she was charged with neglect of a dependent, assisting a criminal and resisting law enforcement.
 
    Billups didn't return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking comment Saturday.
 
    A probable cause affidavit says police arrested Billups Feb. 15 after the suspect allegedly hid in a closet upstairs at her Lafayette home while Billups blocked officers from the staircase by surrounding herself on the landing with her five children, ages 9 to 15.
