Psychiatric hospitalization for woman in standoff

Posted: Updated:
LEXINGTON, Mich. (AP) -

Police say a 77-year-old southeastern Michigan woman is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation after she held police at bay with a handgun inside her car in a police department parking lot.

Port Huron police Capt. Jeff Baker says officers surrounded the woman's car Saturday in the lot in Lexington. He says she'd driven there after a high-speed pursuit with police that started in Port Huron over a speeding violation.

He says the woman kept pointing the gun toward her vehicle's roof during the incident.

Police say she's undergoing psychiatric evaluation Sunday at a Port Huron hospital for evaluation and police will review the events before preparing a report to prosecutors about possible charges.
