SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- A 60-year-old man is facing charges of resisting an officer and bail jumping after police say he caused a major disruption at a home in Sun Prairie.

This happened Friday afternoon at 712 Chase Boulevard.

Police say John Tyaransen threatened suicide and waived what appeared to be a handgun.

Police say he wouldn't surrender, so they shot him with a bean bag and took him into custody.

The gun turned out to be a BB gun pistol.
