ESCANABA — A 30-year-old Bark River man was arraigned on several charges Tuesday in connection with a domestic violence incident involving a handgun in Escanaba this past weekend, according to Delta County District Court officials.

Following a high-speed chase early Sunday morning, Escanaba Public Safety arrested Joshua Daniel Tryan, of 3584 10th Road, Bark River, who had fled on an ATV after allegedly attempting to enter a home in Escanaba while armed with a pistol.

At around 1:05 a.m. Sunday, officers were dispatched to a residence on the 1400 block of 5th Avenue South where a female reported a male subject was armed and trying to enter the home.

Officers quickly responded to the scene and approached Tryan who then fled on an ATV without headlights, ignoring police lights and sirens while exceeding speed limits on South 14th Street.

Following a brief chase, officers stopped Tryan on the 1300 block of South 8th Street, apprehending him in possession of a loaded handgun. He was lodged in the county jail where he remains in lieu of 10 percent of a $50,000 bond.

During his arraignment in court Tuesday, Tryan was charged with the following four counts: carrying a concealed weapon, a five-year felony; fleeing and eluding police, a five-year felony; domestic violence, a 93-day misdemeanor; and possession of a firearm while intoxicated, also a 93-day misdemeanor.

He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in district court on Sept. 21.

Bond conditions include no drugs or alcohol. He is not to enter bars or possess firearms.

He must wear an alcohol tether and submit to random drug testing. He must have no contact with the victim and must reside at his parents’ home in Escanaba with a curfew from 5:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m.
