Man Involved in Minneapolis Hotel Standoff Faces New Charges
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ A Minnesota man who held police off for two days in a Minneapolis hotel faces new felony charges.
Hennepin County prosecutors say 46-year-old Lincoln Bowman of Woodbury is charged with obstructing legal process and property damage. The charges came this week after prosecutors dropped previous kidnapping charges due to lack of evidence.
Police say they went to the Graduate Hotel near the University of Minnesota in January after a relative told them Bowman was threatening to harm himself and others. Bowman allegedly said he would hurt officers who came into the room and would set fire to the hotel. A SWAT team later ended the 38-hour standoff.
It wasn't immediate clear if Bowman has an attorney for the new charges. He was appearing in court Friday.
