ESCANABA, Mich. -

A Michigan Republican State Committee member facing charges in Wisconsin has been jailed in Michigan's Upper Peninsula on other charges.

The Detroit Free Press says 51-year-old Doug Sedenquist missed a Tuesday court hearing in Green Bay, Wis., because he was in custody in Delta County. The Escanaba man was arrested last week on charges including extortion and using a computer to commit a crime.

In Wisconsin, he faces charges of disobeying police, sending a threat and disorderly conduct. They stem from a March incident in which authorities say Sedenquist was involved in an armed standoff with officers responding to his suicide threat.

The Associated Press left a message with defense lawyer Chad Thomas.
Sedenquist also had been Delta County Republican vice chairman and has worked in talk radio.
