Officers in Hugo arrested a man after an hours-long standoff, according to police. Michael James Hardy, 43, was arrested on two active warrants. The first was for federal probation violation and the second was for first-degree controlled substance with a weapon.
A stun gun was used to detain a Brooklyn Center man after he attempted to flee from custody during a probation violation hearing at the Benton County Court Facility on Thursday morning. Dontae Marcus Frazier, 36, had just been sentenced to 86 months in prison and was about to be taken into custody when he fled the courtroom at about 11:10 a.m. Benton County bailiffs and County Attorney Phil Miller stopped Frazier in a hallway, and a stun gun was soon used to detain him.
