A man is facing multiple charges after keeping police at bay during a six-hour standoff at his home. Maine State Police said 46-year-old James Garland of Dedham surrendered to police about 8 a.m. Sunday. Hancock County sheriff’s deputies, along with Holden and Ellsworth police officers, were called to the lakeside home about 2 a.m. after a woman reported that Garland had assaulted her and fired a handgun. The woman fled when police arrived, and State Police were called when Garland barricaded himself inside the house. Nobody was injured during the standoff. Garland is charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence assault.
