A Grand Forks man has been arraigned on illegal possession of a firearm and disorderly conduct charges.

Phillip Manaigre, 22, waived his preliminary hearing and pled not guilty today.

He faces the charges after police say he left a loaded shotgun at the Grand Forks Herald newspaper.

Maniagre then held police in a six hour standoff in early March when the tried to arrest him at his Grand Forks mobile home.

A negotiator and SWAT team members were called in to help and police tried several different things to get Manaigre out of his home including two "flash-bangs" shooting out his windows with bean bag rounds, and tear gas.

They got him out after breaking down the door.

Manaigre will be in court for a pretrial conference in May.
