Two Eagle River residents are being held in the Oneida County jail on a number of charges related to an incident Tuesday at the Marshfield Clinic facility in Minocqua.

According to a press release from Minocqua police chief Dave Jaeger, the department's dispatch center received a 9-1-1 call to respond to a panic alarm on the second floor of Marshfield Clinic.

He said when officers arrived, they were advised by Marshfield Clinic staff members that Joseph R. Buza, 70, and Jillian L. Buza, 39, were causing a disturbance and weapons were involved.

Jaeger said in the press release it was reported the subjects attempted to hold a Marshfield Clinic care provider against her will threatening to harm the care provider with a hatchet and meat tenderizer.

"Due to the quick response and actions of the Marshfield Clinic staff, the subjects were subdued until law enforcement arrived," he said.

Jaeger said a loaded handgun and ammunition were also discovered in a bag belonging to and in possession of the Buzas.

As a result of the investigation, they were taken into custody, transported and booked into the Oneida County Jail.

They're charged with false imprisonment, endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon, carrying a concealed weapon, attempted battery (aggravated) - intend bodily harm and disorderly conduct.

"If it wasn't for the quick response of the Marshfield Clinic staff, I'm sure it would've ended up much worse," Jaeger told The Lakeland Times on Wednesday.
