A 40-year-old man appeared in a Platte County courtroom Tuesday for a hearing. Jeffrey Griffith was arrested after a standoff at a building in Dawn in March. He was wanted for failing to appear in St. Joseph, and also had an outstanding Platte County felony warrant for resisting arrest and a Buchanan County warrant for assault.
Griffith is now facing charges of of resisting arrest, careless and imprudent driving, and speeding. He has waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will return to court on July 11 for further proceedings.
