Prosecutors charge man arrested in motorcycle shop standoff (UPDATE)

Associated Press

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Prosecutors have accused the man arrested in a hostage standoff at a Wisconsin motorcycle shop of crimes that include firing a bullet into a woman’s bedroom wall after a night of drinking.

The charges against 45-year-old Brian Flatoff stem from what authorities say happened before he went into Eagle Nation Cycles in Neenah on Saturday.

Flatoff hasn’t been charged in the standoff itself, which left one man dead and a police officer injured after a bullet bounced off his helmet, and authorities have released few details, citing an investigation.

A spokeswoman from the Winnebago County District Attorney’s Office says Flatoff wasn’t asked to enter a plea during his appearance Wednesday. His bond was set at $500,000 cash.

Attempts to reach his public defender by phone and email weren’t immediately successful.
