NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Reuters) - A National Guard recruiter accused of wounding three superiors and threatening a fourth after he was relieved of duty was indicted Wednesday on nine federal charges, including attempting to kill U.S. employees.
Sergeant First Class Amos Patton, 42, also faces four counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one of using and carrying a 9mm Glock semi-automatic handgun in relation to a crime of violence, prosecutors said. He could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
