INDIANA (AP) – Indiana prosecutors have charged former University of Michigan and Detroit Lions player Corwin Brown with three felonies after a seven-hour standoff with police last Friday.

Brown had been charged with domestic battery for bruising his wife during the disturbance and two counts of confinement for allegedly holding her hostage with a handgun.

Bond was set at $50,000 for Brown, who is also a former assistant coach at Notre Dame.

The seven-hour standoff in Granger, Ind., ended when Brown shot himself in the torso and was taken to a hospital.
