Union Parish standoff ends in arrest
A Spearsville man remained in custody Monday on one count of attempted second-degree murder and six counts of illegal use of a weapon.
Norman C. Nute, 64, of 3789 Louisiana Hwy. 550, was being held in the Union Parish Detention Center on total bond of $240,000 while undergoing psychological evaluation, Sheriff Bob Buckley said.
Nute, a Vietnam veteran, told deputies that people were out to “get him” and that he was just “trying to get people’s attention.”
