Beloit police are looking for a man associated with a 14-hour standoff last month and who they say threatened the victim involved in the incident with a gun while he was out on bail.

Vernon Lige, 31, was recognized by paramedics during a medical emergency Oct. 12 , after police posted on social media that they were looking for him after a 14-hour standoff in the 2000 block of St. Lawrence Street revealed he was not in the house.

Police said Lige pointed a gun at his girlfriend, which prompted her to call police. About 12 hours after the incident began , police said they entered the home and determined Lige was not inside.

Lige was charged in Rock County court with disorderly conduct, arson of property, intentionally pointing a firearm at a person and bail jumping. On Nov. 2, Lige’s $500 cash bail was posted and he was released.

On Monday, Lige went to his ex-live-in-girlfriend’s residence with a gun and demanded the occupants tell him the whereabouts of the woman, with the intent to threaten, intimidate and/or harm her, police said.

The woman was not at the residence at the time, so Lige left in a white Dodge Avenger with dark tinted windows, according to a release.

Beloit police are looking to arrest Lige on tentative charges of burglary, felony bail jumping, felony intimidation of a witness, endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct while armed.

Officials ask anyone who sees Lige to call the Greater Beloit Area Crimestoppers at 608-362-7463.
