Waupun Standoff Suspect Charged

Bond was set at $20,000 cash for the 22-year-old Waupun man who got in a six-hour stand off with police last week. But Kenneth Becker, Jr. refused to sign a bond form so there’s no bond until he does. He was charged Thursday in Fond du Lac County Court with failing to comply with an officer and disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon. A preliminary hearing is scheduled next Friday. Police say Becker barricaded himself in his home on Tuesday, December 30th threatening to harm himself. He was eventually talked into giving himself up and no shots were fired during the incident.
