Home surrounded in Lapeer County, man not inside

Posted: Updated:

(08/01/12) - The standoff between police and a Lapeer County man is over, but the man at the center of it all is not in police custody.

The County's special response team surrounded a home Wednesday afternoon on Farnsworth near Bowers Road, just east of Lapeer.

According to the sheriff, the man's girlfriend called 911 after things escalated, and was able to get out, leaving him in the home alone.

By the time officers got into the home safely, the man, who may have been armed and who is said to have a lengthy criminal record, was not there.

Wednesday, the Sheriff told ABC12 they intend to seek charges against the man, tied to the domestic situation that unfolded, and perhaps more.

No one was hurt.
