A brief standoff between law enforcement and a man in Le Mars ended without any injuries Monday night. Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo says the man refused to go with a deputy about 6 P.M.
"The deputy was met with some resistance from the individual he was attempting to serve the paper on. When the occupant decided he was not going to leave with the deputy, the deputy decided to back away, call for help and the individual did semi-barricade himself in the trailer," Van Otterloo says.
The sheriff says the man later allowed a woman who was with him to leave. About three hours after the deputy went to the mobile home, a police and sheriff’s office Special Response Team forced open a door to get into the trailer and they brought out the man. The sheriff says the man’s name is not being released because the investigation is continuing and he has not been charged.
