Turner County Sheriff Byron Nogelmeier says a man taken into custody Monday after a 13-hour standoff at a Marion home could be charged with kidnapping.
Nogelmeier says the 32-year-old man is not yet facing charges for the standoff because he is being held in the state prison for violating parole. But the sheriff says charges could be filed later this week, and the man could face kidnapping charges.
The man led law officers on a chase through three counties before holing up in his grandmother's house in the southeastern South Dakota town of Marion.
He allowed his grandmother to leave the home Monday morning and released a 15-year-old female relative in the afternoon.
The man was taken into custody after officers shot pepper spray into the house.
