LYNDON—A Vassar man, arrested in February after an eight-hour
police standoff at his residence, entered pleas of no contest
to two felony offenses Tuesday in Osage County District Court.
Denver R. Miller, 31, was arrested at 2601 Main St., Vassar, Feb.
23, after surrendering to law enforcement officers that had surrounded
the home since the afternoon of the previous day. According to
Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn, the standoff began after a member
of Miller’s family reported an armed, distraught person
inside of the house.
Miller appeared before Osage County Magistrate Judge Stephen Jones
in district court April 21, at which time Jones agreed to reduce
Miller’s bond from $100,000 to $25,000. Miller also waived
a preliminary hearing in the case and Jones ordered him to appear
before Osage County District Court Judge Phillip M. Fromme on
April 26, and undergo mental and drug and alcohol evaluations.
Miller was released on bond after last week’s hearing.
