PORTAGE – A village man is being held in the Wood County Jail on a series of charges after a standoff with police Tuesday night.
Just after 9 p.m. the Wood County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from Ruben Baldonado, 42, at his home in the 200 block of South Water Street. Baldonado reportedly threatened to harm himself and said he would shoot any deputies that came to his residence.
The Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team (SRT) and crisis negotiators responded to the scene.
During negotiations, Baldonado fled the residence and was taken into custody.
He is being held on $10,000 bail on charges of using weapons while intoxicated and inducing panic, both misdemeanors, and having weapons while under a disability, a felony.
Baldonado is expected to appear in court today.
