DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A Camden-Wyoming man is facing several charges after barricading himself in his home last week, leading to a standoff with police.

Delaware State Police said 49-year-old John M. Deane was taken into custody Monday after being released from a hospital where he was treated for self-inflicted wounds sustained during last Wednesday's incident. He is charged with two counts of reckless endangering, two counts of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, aggravated menacing, assault, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest. He is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on an $18,000 cash bail.

Troopers went to Deane's home on the 700 block of Green Winged Trail in the Wild Quail development in response to a reported domestic assault. Authorities said Deane had assaulted his 28-year-old girlfriend and threatened to kill her. Police said the woman escaped from the home and when troopers arrived, Deane shot a pellet gun through the second-floor windows in their direction.

Deane remained barricaded inside the house for more than eight hours before troopers forced their way in and took him into custody.
