West Bend man arrested following police standoff


WEST BEND, WI (WTAQ) - A man who was bleeding from his head and claiming he had been shot held off police for almost three hours Friday night.

West Bend police say they got a call about a 46-year-old man who was locked in an apartment at about 8:15 p.m.

When officers arrived on the scene, the man inside refused help, claimed he was armed and threatened violence if anyone came in the apartment.

Shortly before 11 p.m. he finally came outside and was arrested.

An initial examination discovered that the man hadn’t been shot and had instead injured himself accidentally.
