WAUCONDA – The 26-year-old Wauconda man who sparked a five-hour standoff with police Wednesday faces three misdemeanor charges, police said.
Tyler Scatena smashed out the windows of his trailer at 410 S. Barrington Road, Lot, 92, made threatening remarks to his neighbors, then retreated into his trailer before police arrived, according to a news release from the Wauconda Police Department.
