      A man was taken into custody on domestic abuse charges after a brief standoff in Bear Lake Wednesday morning.

      According to the Manistee County Sheriff, deputies were alerted to the situation after a woman called and said she was assaulted by her husband. She also reported that there was a gun in the house.

      Deputies responded to the home on US-31 and Norconk Road around 10:30 a.m. and after about half an hour on scene, they made contact with the man. He surrendered to police around 11 a.m.

      Traffic was diverted along US-31 during the standoff. The road has since been re-opened.

      The man is being charged with domestic abuse in the situation.

      No injuries have been reported at this time.
