Grand Island assault convict headed to prison
A Grand Island man who was at the center of a standoff with police last fall is headed to prison.
Bailey Brown, 24, was convicted of Second Degree Assault in connection with the case.
Grand Island Police police said Brown held them off for three hours in September in his grandparent's home at the corner of Sycamore and East 13th Street. Police eventually forced their way into the home and arrested Brown. No one was injured during the arrest or during the stand-off.
Brown was wanted in connection with an incident that happened at a house party on July 14th. Court records indicate a man was injured when Brown reportedly struck him with a beer bottle. The victim suffered cuts to his forehead and scalp. He later identified Brown from a police photo array.
A judge this week sentenced Brown to five to eight years in prison.
