A Glen Burnie woman barricaded herself in her apartment with a loaded handgun and held county police at bay for almost two hours Tuesday afternoon before surrendering, officials said.
Police went to the apartment in the 200 block of Mountain Ridge Court at 11:55 a.m. after Dennis Rogers, 45, called and said he was afraid his wife would harm herself. Mr. Rogers told Annapolis District Court Judge Martha F. Rasin at the woman's bail review hearing yesterday afternoon that at no time did his wife point a gun at him or anyone else.
Officers negotiated with the woman until about 1:40 p.m., when she opened the door and surrendered.
Sandra Rogers, 45, was charged with assault with intent to FTC murder, assault and reckless endangerment, police said. Judge Rasin ordered her released on her own recognizance on condition that she get a psychiatric evaluation today at a medical facility that her husband selected. Ms. Rogers' original bail was $75,000.
