Missouri’s Probation and Parole Board has revoked the parole of the Columbia man who barricaded himself inside a home for six hours last week before surrendering.
28-year-old Ronald Lee Powell is currently incarcerated at the Fulton Reception and Diagnostic Center. It’s his third stint in state prison, and that’s on top of the domestic assault and armed criminal action charges he’s currently facing.
Missouri Department of Corrections spokeswoman Karen Pojmann tells 939 the Eagle that Powell was paroled from prison on August 7. Powell was wanted on 11 felony warrants when he barricaded himself inside a home last Monday. The Columbia Police Department’s SWAT and crisis negotiation teams responded, and our news partner KMIZ reports police also used gas and drones during the standoff, which happened in broad daylight.
Powell is scheduled to appear in Boone County Circuit Court tomorrow afternoon, via video. He’s facing new felony charges from August of domestic assault, accused of threatening to stab a woman with kitchen utensils.
