Black River Falls man behind bars following 4-hour standoff with police

Jackson County (WQOW) – A Black River Falls man is behind bars after a four-hour standoff with police at a home in Jackson County.

According to the sheriff’s office, Anthony Phillips, 40, was wanted for outstanding warrants when they were tipped off he was in a home in Black River Falls on March 6.

Deputies arrived and were given permission by another owner of the home to go inside. Deputies said Phillips had a .22 and was threatening to shoot himself if law enforcement entered.

That led to a four-hour standoff.

Phillips eventually surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody.

Phillips was booked into the Jackson County Jail on charges of domestic disorderly conduct, domestic battery, false imprisonment and a felony DOC warrant.

Additional charges are pending, according to authorities.
