MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Court records show Matthew Shashy, 28, has been indicted by a federal grand jury. The Montgomery County District Attorney's office charged him January with three counts of making terrorist threats.
Federal court records indicate Shashy was charged with a single count of interfering with the performance of official duties by using a weapon intended to cause death and danger.
The single count indictment is likely connected to reports that Shashy fired shots near the Maxwell Air Force Base gate on Maxwell Boulevard. The government filed a motion to detain Shashy, citing a serious risk the defendant will flee, a serious risk of obstruction of justice, and for the safety of any other person and the community.
Shashy was involved in 12-hour standoff with police on Jan. 3 before surrendering in the early morning hours of the next day. Police say Shashy's arrest was the result of an investigation that began after threatening graffiti messages were found outside the Montgomery Police Department, Maxwell Air Force Base, and around the Alabama Capitol.
Federal court documents confirm the case was unsealed on Feb. 7, documenting Shashy appeared before Judge Terry Moorer and is in custody of the court.
Shashy was out on bond after a Montgomery County district judge approved a motion to allow Shashy to leave Montgomery County and work on a family farm in Lowndes County. The condition of Shashy's state bond involved an in-patient medical care, wearing an electronic monitoring device after release and adhering to medical recommendations.
