GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — The Green Bay Police Department is recommending charges to the Brown County District Attorney’s Office for a 31-year-old Green Bay man, who was arrested on Wednesday following a more than seven-hour standoff on the city’s west side.

According to police, the following charges have been referred to the Brown County District Attorney’s Office:

  • Resisting or Obstructing an Officer – Two Counts
  • Failure to Comply with Officer’s Attempt to Take Person into Custody
  • Probation Violation

Green Bay Police said the incident began Wednesday afternoon in the 700 block of South Ridge Road when an officer had identified the man at his home and attempted to make contact as he was wanted on a felony probation/parole warrant.

Police said the suspect then proceeded to barricade himself inside, refusing to come out despite police orders. Nearby roads were closed during the standoff and schools near the area were notified.

With no surrender, police said SWAT, along with K9, entered the home to bring the man into custody, which occurred around 7:45 p.m. without further incident. This remains an active investigation.
