AUBURN, MI (WNEM) -

The man who held police at bay for hours Wednesday is now facing charges.

The Bay City Times reports that 32-year-old Brandon Carrier has been charged with making a terrorist threat.

The charges stem from a stand-off that happened Wednesday morning in the Bay County community of Auburn.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office said deputies were dispatched to 220 Shady Lane around 3:40 a.m. Wednesday after Carrier allegedly began making threats to hurt himself and police. The area is just south of West Midland Road, between 9 Mile and Garfield roads.

When deputies arrived, they heard Carrier making verbal threats to harm police. Deputies backed away, secured a perimeter and called in the Michigan State Police Emergency Support Team. That team took Carrier into custody, where he was then turned over to the Bay County Sheriff's Office.

The situation was wrapped up about six hours later. Roads were blocked off in the area as a result of the standoff.

Carrier is now being held on $200,000 bond and he is due in court later this month.
