A 53-year-old man threatening suicide causes a five-hour standoff with law enforcement.
Shortly after midnight on Monday, the Rock County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to a residence on the 2200 block of Huebbe Parkway in the Town of Turtle on the report of a man threatening to harm himself.
According to a news release, after other residents of the home told sheriff's deputies the man was suicidal, the SWAT team was called in. After five hours trying to negotiate with the man, he was taken into custody without incident. So far no charges have been filed.
