AUGUSTA — A man is being evaluated at a hospital following an overnight standoff with police in Windsor.

Staff Sgt. Frank Hatch, of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, said Thursday charges are pending against the man, whom he declined to identify because no charges have been yet been filed.

Deputies were sent to 122 Greeley Road in Windsor shortly before midnight Wednesday in response to a domestic violence complaint that mentioned a firearm. When they arrived, a person had left the house and a man remained inside.

The four deputies on duty and three more officers, including a lieutenant, were at the scene from the sheriff’s office for more than seven hours, and they were joined by several Maine State Police troopers overnight, Hatch said.

As the Maine State Police Tactical Team, which had been called in, was setting up at the scene, the man came out of the house and was taken into custody, Hatch said, and was taken to a hospital.

Hatch said the man was not injured.
