Man involved in standoff, threatened neighbor faces endangering safety charge, police say

MADISON, Wis. - A man who threatened his neighbor and was involved in a seven-hour standoff last month with police was booked into the Dane County Jail Wednesday.

Christopher L. Hayden, 38, was barricaded in his home after threatening his neighbor with a gun, but walked out of the Marquette Street house voluntarily, police said.

Hayden was taken to the veterans hospital for evaluation after the incident. He was booked into the Dane County Jail Wednesday and tentatively charged with second-degree reckless endangering safety and failure to comply.

Police said that Hayden was going through personal issues, which could have been a factor. Officials say he was agitated and yelled out the window to them in a threatening manner.
