Estherville man arrested after standoff

ESTHERVILLE, Iowa (KCAU) — Authorities arrested an Estherville man on several charges after a standoff that lasted more than five hours.

The Estherville Police Department said on a post received a report of a domestic dispute Thursday around 1:57 p.m. at a residence in the 300 block of West 5th Avenue North. Officers arrived at the scene and were told the suspect was damaging property.

Officers tried to speak with the suspect, later identified as Andrew John Schwager, 38, of Estherville, when he broke a window, threatened officers with a knife, and barricaded himself in the residence, the release said.

A crisis negotiator from the HEAT Tactical Team arrived and tried to speak with Schwager who again allegedly threatened authorities and started to throw broken glass at them.

Officers requested help from the HEAT Tactical Team and also requested for arrest and search warrants.

After multiple more attempts were made to get Schwager to surrender, he allegedly started a fire in the house’s entryway.

Around 7:47 p.m., the HEAT Tactical Team entered the residence, deployed a less-lethal impact weapon, and took Schwager into custody.

Schwager had minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital to be examined. After being treated and released, he was arrested and booked into the Emmet County Jail. He was charged with two counts of first-degree harassment, aggravated misdemeanors; one count of fourth-degree criminal mischief, a serious misdemeanor; one count of reckless use of fire, a serious misdemeanor; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a simple misdemeanor.
