Bail remains at $150,000 for the 20-year-old Inver Grove Heights man arrested following last week's police standoff.

A bond hearing was held Friday morning in Hastings for Joseph John Gallahue, who allegedly was holed up with a gun in a residence for six hours on Dec. 28.

Gallahue has been charged with a felony dangerous weapons crime, according to court records.

The court ruled to keep his bail for release from the Dakota County Jail at $150,000 without conditions, or $100,000 with conditions, which include not using or possessing a firearm and not leaving the state without written permission.

Gallahue can be furloughed to a "locked down facility" without paying bail if his family can find an open bed, according to the Dakota County Jail website.

At midday Friday, he remained in custody at the county jail.

Gallahue's next court appearance is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. March 25 in Hastings. His omnibus hearing scheduled for Jan. 14 was cancelled.
