Kevin R. Thiele

Stand-off ends in arrest

A 29-year-old man is facing a variety of charges after Rock County Sheriff's deputies say he held them at bay for more then three hours Sunday afternoon.  Deputies responded to 2232 East West Hart Road in Beloit Township following an abandoned 9-1-1 call a little before 2:00 o'clock.  They say they found Kevin R. Thiele, possibly under the influence, had brandished a fire arm during a domestic disturbance.  Deputies say two minor children were in the home and Thiele refused to communicate with them.  They called in the SWAT team, and following an afternoon of negotiations say Thiele surrendered peacefully,  Thiele was arrested on charges of Disorderly Conduct/Domestic Violence while armed, Recklessly Endangering Safety, and Failure to Comply with Officer's Attempt to Take a Person into Custody.
