Former NFDL Man Charged For FDL Standoff Incident

Bond has been set at $4,000 cash for a former North Fond du Lac man involved in a standoff with Fond du Lac Police last week. The seven charges against 49-year-old Brian Santistevan of Greendale stem from two separate incidents, but three of them are for last Wednesday night’s incident in the 100 block of Sibley Street. He allegedly held his estranged girlfriend and her 8-year-old daughter at knifepoint before he fell asleep and they escaped from the residence. After he awoke there was a standoff with police that ended peacefully. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.
