REED CITY — The Marion man who temporarily barricaded himself in a home over the weekend was arraigned Tuesday in Osceola County's 77th District Court.

Matthew Thomas Patterson, 28, is charged with felon in possession of a firearm, felonious assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence.

According to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to the residence at 6:10 a.m. on Jan. 25, for a report of domestic assault. Patterson barricaded himself inside the home for a short period of time, then freely exited the residence and was taken into custody.

The weapon involved in the felonious assault charge was a knife, according to court documents.

The charge of possession of a firearm by a felon carries a maximum penalty of five years and a fine of $5,000. If convicted, the weapon must be forfeited. Patterson is charged as a habitual offender, having previous breaking-and-entering convictions. Because of this, Patterson's sentence could be increased if convicted.

Bond for Patterson is set at $75,000. He has a preliminary examination scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 12, in Osceola County's 77th District Court.
