Indianola man charged after weapons scare with police

INDIANOLA, Iowa- An Indianola man is charged with two counts of intimidation with a dangerous weapon and and interference with official acts, after an incident with police this (Tuesday) morning.

Police were called to an Indianola home, at South P and West 2nd Avenue after 9 o'clock, and encountered a man armed with a rifle. Police say he eventually put the gun down, but went back into the home and came back with two handguns.

Police eventually took 29-year-old Richard Biesemeyer into custody, and he is being held in the Jasper County Jail.

Biesemeyer also faces several charges from an April incident at a bar, in which police say he started fights, and shouted racial slurs at law enforcement and spat blood at deputies.
