MARSHFIELD — On Sunday, Sept. 24, the Marshfield Police Department had a safe resolution to a negotiation with a wanted individual on the 1100 block of East Kalsched Street in Marshfield.
The situation began at 9:52 a.m. when a Marshfield officer noticed 24-year-old Michael J. Lea outside of a home in which he had been suspected to reside. Lea had an outstanding warrant for a robbery in Kansas City and was considered armed and dangerous due to prior convictions.
When officers attempted to speak with Lea, he went into the residence and refused to cooperate.
Portions of East Kalsched Street and North Hinman Avenue were blocked off while officers worked to resolve the situation.
At noon, crisis negotiators made contact with Lea. Lea was arrested at 3:18 p.m.
Members of the Marshfield Police Department, Wood County Sheriff’s Department, Marathon County Sheriff’s Department, Village of Spencer Police Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, Marshfield Police Auxiliary, and Marshfield Fire and Rescue Department assisted with the incident.
No one was injured during Lea’s apprehension.
