ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Charges have been filed against a man accused of holding five employees hostage during a standoff at a St. Cloud, Minnesota, bank that lasted more than eight hours.

He is scheduled to appear in court later Friday to set his bail.

Police say that no firearm was found on McNeary or at the scene.

McNeary was arrested in the bank shortly after the fifth and final hostage left the building about 10 p.m.
