Albany -- The Albany man who held off police in a 10-hour standoff two weeks ago, appears before a judge for the first time.

The 38-year-old Albany Fire Department lieutenant was brought back from Southwestern State Hospital in Thomasville Tuesday night. Reginald Collier had been undergoing psychological evaluation at the Thomasville hospital since the police standoff April 15th.

Wednesday morning, Collier made his first appearance before a judge at the Dougherty County Jail. Collier is charged with three counts of aggravated assault, three more counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, and terroristic acts.

 Prosecutors say Collier fired several shots out his West Gordon apartment window. For ten hours police surrounded his apartment, trying to get him to give up.

Finally flash grenades thrown by the S.W.A.T. team set Collier's apartment on fire, and he was arrested.

 The judge did not set bond for Collier.
