The suspect in Tuesday's standoff situation has pled not guilty to charges against him.
Matthew Jacob Wenn, 29, was charged with domestic violence and possession of firearms under the influence. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Wenn pled not guilty to the charges.
Wenn was arrested after a standoff situation that lasted about 3 hours Tuesday morning. He was arrested just after 9 a.m. when he walked out of the Onaway house with his hands on his head.
According to Sgt. John Kasuba of the Presque Isle County Sheriff's Department, dispatch received a call about a domestic violence issue between the man and his girlfriend at her home around 1:23 a.m. Wenn then reportedly left his girlfriend's home and went to the other home on M-33 where the standoff took place.
Authorities proceeded with caution because they believed he was drunk with weapons inside the home.
The standoff also closed nearby Onaway Community Schools, Presque Isle Academy and Onaway Headstart and closed part of M-33 through Onaway.
A bond was set at $10,000. Wenn is still in jail at this time.
Wenn is expected back in court on October 29 for a pre-trial.
