OSHKOSH — A Wisconsin man accused
of starting a hostage standoff at a motorcycle shop has been bound
over for trial.
Forty-six-year-old Brian Flatoff of
Stevens Point waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday.
Appleton Post-Crescent Media (http://post.cr/1LhWWES
) reports a Winnebago County judge ordered Flatoff to stand trial.
Flatoff faces murder and attempted
first-degree homicide charges in the Dec. 5 standoff at Eagle
Nation Cycles in Neenah. One man died and a police officer was
injured after a bullet bounced off his helmet.
Flatoff also faces charges for a
disturbance at a woman's home that preceded the standoff. His
arraignment is set for March 17.
Michael Funk was fatally shot as he
left the motorcycle shop. Police say Funk was armed and didn't
obey police commands to drop his weapon. The Wisconsin Department
of Justice is investigating.
