FDL Man Charged For Domestic Violence Incident

A 35-year-old Fond du Lac man involved in a standoff with police last Saturday evening has been charged with false imprisonment, battery, disorderly conduct and bail jumping. The first three charges against Hector Velez carry domestic abuse repeater enhancers. He made his initial appearance Wednesday in Fond du Lac County Court. According to the criminal complaint he was seen pulling a woman out of a car by her hair and dragging her and her three children into a home on North Boardman Street. Officers learned he may have weapons and has a violent history so a SWAT team was brought in. They gained entry into the home and took him into custody. He is being held in the County Jail on a $2,000 cash bond and has a preliminary hearing next Thursday.
