Marshfield police evacuated some apartments and a retirement home during Thursday's noon hour while a drunken man barricaded himself in a home. 

Thirty-three-year-old Kurtis Wegner had called 9-1-1 saying his handgun had been stolen.  Police were told he had access to another weapon as he refused to come out of a bedroom.  The area was cleared for about an hour until Wegner finally gave up.  The Wood County district attorney will determine whether gun charges are filed.
