    Police in Laconia, New Hampshire, have issued an arrest warrant for the man who allegedly caused a police standoff on Tuesday afternoon.

    Robert Audette, 26, is wanted on a felony criminal threatening charge. Laconia Police allege that Audette threatened a male individual on Tuesday morning, leading to the police event on Jewett Street.
