Court hearing delayed for suspect in armed police standoff

MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) – An initial court appearance has been delayed for a Minneapolis man arrested for pointing a short-barreled shotgun last night at a Lincoln County sheriff's deputy during a traffic stop.

Assistant district attorney Kurt Zengler said there would first be a civil proceeding against 55-year-old Bruce Lyon-Dugin before prosecutors filed criminal charges. Zengler would not elaborate on what the civil proceeding meant though such hearings are typically used to address a defendant's mental health issues.

Lyon-Dugin's family appeared in court Friday but declined comment.

Deputies stopped Lyon-Dugin on Highway K about 7:45 last night after callers told 9-1-1 dispatchers that he appeared to be driving erratically, according to a sheriff's office news release.

Lyon-Dugin appeared intoxicated when deputies approached his car. He pointed the shotgun out the window and a short standoff occurred.

Lyon-Dugin then got out of the car without the weapon. He refused to comply with the deputy's instructions and had to be physically subdued before deputies could arrest him.
