Man booked into jail after standoff
A man who climbed into his garage rafters and refused to come down for police, fell out as officers were going in to get him Tuesday night, said Under Sheriff Steve Albertsen.
Albertsen said officers were called out to the 2600 block of Meadowbrook Lane at 6 p.m. on a report of a domestic dispute between Timothy Neiderer and his parents.
Neiderer, 27, allegedly tore up the home, then when police arrived, he barricadedhimself in the garage, said Albertsen, eventually making his way into the rafters.
The under sheriff said when deputies tried to coax the man down, he began throwing items from the rafters at officers.
As police were planning to go in and extricate him, said Albertsen, the Neiderer lost his footing and fell to the garage floor.
“When we went into get him, he started fighting and we had to tase him,” said Albertsen.
The man was taken to the hospital with a minor head injury from falling and for a mental evaluation, said Albertsen. He was booked into the jail this morning on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, malicious destruction of property and obstruction of a peace officer. Bail was set at $20,000.
The incident blocked a portion of Meadowbrook for an hour.
