DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Dubuque police arrested a man after spending hours coaxing him down from a roof.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/YWzb3z ) police arrested 49-year-old Donald A. Puccio on Monday afternoon after a standoff that lasted four hours.

The incident began Monday morning when police investigated a report that Puccio violated a no-contact order. He left before officers arrived, but police later were called to Puccio’s home on a report of a man on the roof. His girlfriend says Puccio has psychological problems and was yelling at children.

Police blocked off streets while officers encouraged him to climb down.

Puccio was charged with two counts of violating a no-contact order and two counts of interference with official acts.

He was in the Dubuque County Jail.

It wasn’t clear if he has an attorney.
