According to a report from KCCI8, a man who lived four miles southeast of Grinnell, Iowa, was arrested by the Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office after he set fires to a home, two vehicles, a barn, and almost 100 bales of hay and fired several shots at police during a more than seven-hour standoff.
A witness and friend of Bauman said that Bauman was angry over a hog confinement project in the area. Bauman discharged a gun multiple times, but police did not fire at him.
Bauman was taken into custody shortly after 9 p.m. Authorities charged him with three counts of second-degree arson and intimidation with a dangerous weapon. No one was injured during the incident.
