Court appearance today for man behind police standoff in Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on July 22, 2014

The man behind a police standoff in Oglesby is due in court Tuesday morning.

Eric Fischer has a court appearance in front of Judge Cynthia Raccuglia on a charge of domestic battery. More charges are pending after Fischer allegedly beat his wife Sunday night and then barricaded himself in an Oglesby home with two handguns and three dogs.

After unsuccessfully trying to get Fischer to come out for over seven hours, officers from around the Illinois Valley went into the home and arrested Fischer. His dogs were taken by La Salle County Animal Control.
