Man charged after four-hour standoff

BOONEVILLE, Miss. —

A 29-year-old Booneville man is being held on $250,000 bond on charges filed after a four-hour standoff Saturday with police at an apartment complex.
 
Police Chief Michael Ramey tells the Daily Corinthian that Patrick Wayne Windham is charged with one count aggravated assault on a police officer with a deadly weapon and one count possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
 
Ramey says police responded to a disturbance call received from the suspect's wife around 3:32 p.m. Saturday. He says officers found Windham had barricaded himself in a bedroom. He says Windham fired one shot which went into a bedroom wall. He says no one was hurt.
 
Windham is being held in the Prentiss County jail. The state has a hold on him for a probation violation.
