A 20-year-old Inver Grove Heights man arrested following a six-hour standoff with police last week is scheduled for a bail hearing in Dakota County District Court in Hastings on Friday.

Joseph John Gallahue was being held in the county jail on $150,000 bail Thursday night.

Gallahue allegedly was holed up with a gun in an Inver Grove Heights home on Dec. 28. A SWAT team ended the standoff when it entered the home and apprehended Gallahue.
