Deer River Man Pleads Guilty to Violent Threats Charges

A Deer River man has pleaded guilty to making violent threats in connection to an incident at a Grand Rapids hotel in August. 

As part of a plea agreement, 18-year-old Patrick Johnson entered a guilty plea to one count of Felony Threats of Violence. 

The charges stem from an incident at the Rapids Hotel on August 4 where Johnson allegedly made threats to physically harm the hotel manager and claimed to be in possession of a gun.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, Johnson will be sentenced to five year’s supervised probation. 

As part of his probation, he must complete 240 hours of community service, pay a $1,085 fine and have no contact with the victims or Hotel Rapids.  

Johnson is expected to be sentenced on December 28. 

Co-defendant Dylan Wise pleaded guilty in October to charges of felony Second Degree Assault and one count of threats of violence. 

Wise allegedly assaulted the hotel clerk with a knife and later threatened a Grand Rapids Officer and his family. 

Sentencing is set for November 23.
