Thursday, September 2, 2010
Cole County prosecutors have filed five charges against the Jefferson City man who was taken into custody after a potential hostage situation in northwestern Jefferson City on Monday evening.
Donald Heidbreder, 46, of 806 Eastern Air Drive, was charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a child, resisting arrest, unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of third-degree domestic assault.
Heidbreder was being held Wednesday in the Cole County Jail on $150,000 bond.
According to a Jefferson City police probable cause statement, the incident started around 6 p.m. Monday.
Heidbreder reportedly was intoxicated and involved in multiple physical confrontations with family members.
When officers reached the home, Heidbreder was in a bedroom with the child and a gun.
Heidbreder eventually was taken into custody -- after being Tasered twice, running down the hallway in the home and having to be fought to be arrested.
