An Orrington man faces several felony charges connected to a Friday morning standoff in Bangor.

Eddie Soto, 34, faces charges including domestic violence criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and creating a police standoff.

Police had blocked off the area of Hammond Street and Elizabeth Avenue for several hours Friday morning while negotiating with Soto, who refused to come out of the victim's apartment.

Soto finally emerged shortly before 10 p.m. after agreeing to surrender to police.

He was taken into custody without incident. Soto was taken to a local medical facility for evaluation, but will ultimately be taken to the Penobscot County Jail, police said.

Soto was on bail for a previous domestic violence arrest.
