Update: Dassel Man Arrested After Long Standoff
DASSEL -- A rural Dassel man has been arrested after a standoff that lasted for hours.
The Meeker County Sheriff says 31-year-old Aaron Peterson surrendered at about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.
No law enforcement or Peterson were hurt during the incident.
The ordeal began on Monday at about 5:30 p.m. when Peterson threatened to shoot some family members. He also made threats to hurt the police if they responded.
It was believed that he may have had a gun, which he is not allowed to have due to an incident that happened in November of 2020.
