Suspect in Grand Rapids standoff arraigned

Darrell Jones, II

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Grand Rapids man has been officially charged with several felonies after holding Grand Rapids police at bay for several hours this week.

Darrell Jones II, 27, could be sentenced to life in prison if he is convicted of all six charges.  He is charged with first degree home invasion, discharge of a firearm in or at a building, carrying a concealed weapon, injuring/harassing a police animal, and two firearms charges. He is also charged as a habitual offender.

The standoff started Thursday night at about 10:00 p.m. at a home in the 400 block of More Street NE. Police say Jones had a gun and appeared to have suicidal thoughts. Investigators said he was uncooperative with officers and forced his way into a home down the block.

Everyone inside got out safely.

Jones surrendered to police at about 6:00 a.m. on Friday.

No one was injured in the standoff.

    The lack of detail and the info as to how and why the charges were arrived at is ridiculous to the point worthless reporting.

      With the number of charges against the guy, describing each one and how it was arrived at would take up too much of the readers’ time. Let’s just say he’s not a good guy and let it go at that.

    And another shooting on Alpine overnight.The “new normal” on the West Side.What’s the city going to do about it?They let the neighborhoods be overrun with thugs(Heartwell and Bliss both need to be blamed)–now what?Accept it?Or change the reasons WHY these people want to come here.Don’t reward them with easy rental privileges for one.Crack down on these city killers.Once word gets around Grand Rapids doesn’t want criminals coming in from Flint,Detroit and elsewhere–they’ll stop moving here.
