A Pasco man is accused of holding his wife and teen daughter against their will after an argument about the girl dating a man he didn't know about.
Ulysses Earl Shawn Rambo, 38, pleaded innocent this week in Franklin County Superior Court to two counts of unlawful imprisonment.
He is out of jail after posting $50,000 bail.
According to court documents, Pasco police were called to Rambo's home at 4538 Moline Lane on Dec. 20 after his 36-year-old wife reported he had assaulted her.

She said Rambo had gotten mad about his teen daughter dating someone he didn't know about, and he pushed his wife several times and hit her in the head with a Glock 26 pistol.
Rambo then put the gun in his pocket and hit his daughter, documents said.
He then held his wife and daughter inside the home and threatened that if they tried to leave he would kill them and had a stand-off with police, documents said.
Man pleads innocent to sexual assault of grade-school girl
A 43-year-old Pasco man faces a Feb. 16 trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a grade-school girl two years ago.
Isidro Gomez Sanchez pleaded innocent Tuesday in Franklin County Superior Court to first-degree child rape. He's being held in the Franklin County jail on $25,000 bail.
The assault was reported Dec. 17 to a Pasco police officer at her school, court documents said.
The officer then contacted Child Protective Services and Kids Haven to talk to the girl, who said Sanchez would get the girl alone, remove her clothes and rape her, document said.
She said she was unable to fight him off the first time, but when he tried a second time she ran away crying and threatened to tell her mom, documents said.
Sanchez then allegedly offered to give her $20 if she didn't tell.
