Wisc. man attacks officers with ax; barricades himself in home

By The Associated Press

WAUZEKA, Wis. — A 52-year-old man has been arrested after he attacked Crawford County sheriff's deputies with an ax and then barricaded himself in his home.

Prairie du Chien Police Chief Michael King says a special operations team that included members of his department attempted to negotiate with the man for about three hours. Then, the naked man ran screaming out of his home about 7:30 p.m. Thursday and charged law enforcement officers.

King says the man was shot with an electronic stun gun and two 12-gauge less lethal impact rounds.
