WATERVILLE, Maine - Maine police say a man is in custody following a 15-hour standoff with an armed suspect in Waterville.
 
Waterville police say 23-year-old Michael Joslyn was taken into custody around noon Sunday after firing multiple gunshots. No one was injured.
 
Police say Joslyn's landlord reported he was attempting to shoot through his apartment floor into the landlord's ground floor apartment. Deputy Police Chief Bill Bonney says Joslyn was intoxicated at the time and was in a dispute with the landlord.
 
Officers say they used pepper balls to subdue Joslyn. He was charged Sunday with aggravated reckless conduct and criminal mischief, both felonies.
 
A court clerk says Joslyn is expected to be arraigned Monday. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer and a number couldn't be found for him.
