RHINELANDER, Wis (WSAU)  Oneida County sheriffs deputies were involved in a high speed chase and a stand-off before bringing a burglary suspect into custody.

It happened Tuesday morning at America's Best Value Inn. 51-year-old Robert Frick fled from officers and led them on a chase onto Sugarbush Road. His car eventually got stuck in a snowbank. He had a firearm in the car, and refused to come out of the vehicle. For a time he pointed the gun at himself and threatened to harm himself before eventually surrendering.

Investigators say Frick is a suspect in several break-ins in the area.
