A Carbon County Man Charged In Friday's Standoff With Bloom Police

Charges have been filed against the man involved in that a four hour standoff with police last week in Bloomsburg. Investigators say 23-year-old David Andrew of Nesquehoning threatened to harm himself and barricaded himself in a bedroom with a handgun early Friday morning inside Hunsuckle Apartments while visiting his girlfriend, who’s a Bloomsburg University student. Officers say Andrew fired two shots during the incident, but no one was injured. Hundreds of residents in the off-campus housing complex were evacuated as a precaution. Andrew, who is not a university student, has been charged with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. Court papers indicate Andrew was heavily intoxicated and the incident was likely touched off by relationship problems with his girlfriend.
