Judge Dead After Standoff With Police

A Florida judge who was arrested on firearms charges last week reportedly shot and killed himself amid a hostage standoff with police Friday. Federal administrative law judge Timothy Maher barricaded himself inside a Princeton home with family members, the Miami Herald reported,

Police and emergency personnel entered the home after hearing the gunshot. Family members in the home were reportedly not injured.

Maher was arrested last week after he was accused of threatening his ex-girlfriend with a firearm at his home in El Portal. Maher barricaded himself in his home at that time, too, and had to be talked out.
