David M. Hintz

Tomah man surrenders to police after brief standoff

A Tomah man is in custody after police located him at a Kilbourn Avenue residence.

David M. Hintz, 25, was arrested Tuesday shortly after 2 p.m. in a house at 605 Kilbourn Ave. Hintz was being investigated by Tomah police related to various criminal activities. He also had an active Wisconsin Department of Corrections warrant for his arrest.

Around 1 p.m. officers received information that Hintz was in the house alone. Hintz has a history of violent behavior so the Monroe County Combined Tactical Team was dispatched to the scene along with a TPD negotiator. For safety, traffic was detoured from streets and sidewalks around the 600 block of Kilbourn Avenue. Tomah Public Works responded to law enforcement requests to assist in closing streets to detour traffic.

At 2:16 p.m. Hintz surrendered to law enforcement and he was taken into custody without injury, but not without incident. According to the TPD press release Hintz later became "non-compliant and assaultive toward officers who were attempting to medically clear him prior to transport to the Monroe County Jail.

No one was injured during the incident. Hintz is currently in jail on the Wisconsin DOC warrant and is facing additional charges. The case remains under investigation. Tomah police confirmed Hintz is the brother of Dalton D. Hintz, who was arrested June 26 after an extended standoff near the Amtrak station in Tomah.
