ASHLAND, WI -

A 68-year-old Ashland man is being held on multiple charges after allegedly threatening his neighbors while carrying a revolver pistol.

According to police, officers were called to a home near the intersection of 11th Street and  MacArthur Avenue shortly after 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

Neighbors in the area told police they were cutting down a tree in their yard with a chainsaw, when the man came out of his house after yelling at them through his window.

Afterwards, neighbors say the suspect, who they believe was drunk, came outside yelling and threatening them while carrying a revolver pistol.

He then went back into his home.

When officers arrived, they called him and tried to negotiate with him to come outside for about an hour.

Officials say since the suspect wouldn't come out, they went into the home with K-9 Chase, where they arrested the suspect.

No one was injured in the incident.

Police took a blood sample before taking the suspect to the Ashland County Jail.

Formal charges are pending, however the suspect is currently being held on potential charges of endangering the safety by use of a dangerous weapon,

terroristic threats, and disorderly conduct.
