A former prison guard accused of taking his mother and two children hostage has been indicted by a grand jury.
Patrick Loftin is charged with two counts of simple assault, assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon on a government employee.
Back in December, deputies responded to his home for a domestic dispute. During the standoff, investigators say Loftin shot at deputies. His mother and two children locked themselves in the basement. Loftin eventually surrendered and no one was hurt.
