A Manhattan man arrested in April for engaging in a 12-hour standoff with Riley County police officers was represented in the Riley County District Court Tuesday afternoon.
Timothy Anderson, 64, was scheduled for a preliminary hearing on June 17 at 2 p.m.
Anderson’s defense asked the court to lessen his bond from $50,000 to as low as $2,500, citing Anderson’s near life-long residency of Riley County, Vietnam veteran status and lack of prior criminal history.
That request was denied.
Anderson’s charges include aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer along with weapon charges.
Anderson, who appeared in court via webcam from the Riley County Jail, allegedly fired a weapon in the area of officers and struck an armored police vehicle.
