A Regal man was taken in for observation after a stand-off with police in Regal yesterday morning.
The 35-year-old man took a large axe and broke a window near the entrance of the Just Down the Road bar on Highway 55. There were several patrons in the establishment eating lunch at the time. The man left the scene with the axe.
The Kandiyohi Sheriff’s Office, along with officers from Paynesville, Belgrade, and the Minnesota State Patrol, were able to set up a perimeter around the man’s home.
Deputies were able to talk the man into surrendering. He was not identified and was taken to Carris Health Rice ER for evaluation. There were no injuries in the incident.
