Casteel is charged with one count each of assault with a dangerous weapon, carrying a weapon with an unlawful intent, intentionally discharging a weapon from a motor vehicle and three counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

If convicted on these charges, he could be sent to prison for seven years.

Judge Carol Sue Reader set a $2 million cash surety bond.  A preliminary exam conference is scheduled for November 14.
