APPLETON, Wis. — A police standoff in Appleton has ended with two officers, a police dog and the fugitive falling through an attic floor.
The two-hour standoff ended about 8 p.m. Tuesday. No one was seriously hurt.
Post-Crescent Media (http://post.cr/1jJ8J1f ) reports Appleton police were trying to arrest a 20-year-old man after he fled during a traffic stop in June. Police identified the vehicle and found the man had several outstanding warrants.
Officers determined the man was in a duplex Tuesday. Police searched the house and found him in the attic.
Police tried to use a stun gun on the man. Authorities say as the man fought back, the officers, the police dog and the fugitive fell through the ceiling of the duplex.
The man was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
