Man detained by police after standoff in Waterville closed down College Avenue neighborhood

WATERVILLE — A man was detained by police late Sunday morning following an hours-long standoff with authorities that ended dramatically when officers fired several rounds of non-lethal pepper balls to disable him. Michael Joslyn, 23, initiated the nearly 13-hours-long standoff with police when he refused to leave his College Avenue apartment building after earlier firing several gunshots through the floor in the direction of his landlord, with whom Deputy Chief Bill Bonney said Joslyn was having a dispute. Bonney also said Joslyn was intoxicated at the time he fired the shots, which totaled about a half-dozen when the standoff ceased. Full story here:
