Prosecutors Thursday filed four charges, including attempted aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, against a man arrested after a standoff Tuesday night with Lawrence police.

Prosecutors also charged Brian Lee Bailey, 22, with aggravated intimidation of a witness or victim, criminal restraint and domestic battery. Bailey was arrested Tuesday night after police surrounded a mobile home in the 3300 block of Iowa Street.

According to the charges, prosecutors accuse Bailey of preparing to fire a revolver at a Lawrence police officer at a door where Bailey believed the officer was about to enter the mobile home. He eventually peacefully surrendered.

The incident stemmed from a domestic disturbance inside the home earlier in the night, and no one was injured. A woman had exited the mobile home earlier before the man’s standoff with police.

A judge set Bailey’s bond at $20,000 and scheduled his next court appearance for 2 p.m. Monday.
