Caseville man surrenders to police after 3-hour standoff

(HURON COUNTY) -- A three-hour standoff with police ended peacefully in Huron County as law enforcement officers from several agencies responded to an area on Kinde Road west of Thomas Road in Huron County's Meade Township Friday evening after a woman called to report that her husband was ramming his pickup truck into hers as she was trying to leave the location with six other family members. The woman, who had gone to the location to retrieve a license plate, was being pushed around the field in the pickup by the suspect who apparently was living in the hunting camp location because the two had been having marital difficulties. She told police she believed the man had been drinking, had numerous weapons, and she feared for her life. Police set up a perimeter of the area. Attempts to contact the suspect by phone were not successful. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson then called for air support from the Oakland County Sheriff Department. When the helicopter arrived the suspect was located in the woods and began cooperating with police. After about three hours he came out and surrendered without incident. Police then confiscated his weapons and impounded his pickup. The suspect, a 49-year-old Caseville man, remains lodged in the Huron County Jail on felonious assault charges. Formal charges are expected.
