MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) – A new trial date is set and new charges were filed for a Minneapolis man accused of pointing a shotgun at Lincoln County deputies last year.
Judge Jay Tlusty bound Bruce Lyon-Dugin over for an October trial date after a motion hearing this week. Lyon-Dugin faces charges of failure to comply with an officer, operating a firearm while intoxicated and resisting an officer.
A motion hearing in the case is set for October 10th. Lyon-Dugin is free on a $5,000 bond.
Deputies stopped Lyon-Dugin on Highway K about 7:45 p.m. July 21st of last year after callers told 9-1-1 dispatchers that he appeared to be driving erratically. Lyon-Dugin appeared intoxicated when deputies approached his car. He pointed the shotgun out the window when a deputy returned and a short standoff occurred.
A deputy ordered Lyon-Dugin out of the car at gunpoint. He got out but had to be physically subdued before deputies could arrest him.
