Man challenged Utah SWAT team search

PROVO, Utah — SWAT team members painted a descriptive narrative Friday of a four-hour standoff with an ex-military man while his lawyer argued to suppress evidence gathered during what he called an "illegal search."

Eagle Mountain resident Matthew Paul Graham, 35, a former Utah National Guardsman, stands charged with aggravated kidnapping, a first-degree felony, stemming from a standoff Jan. 31 with Utah County SWAT. Earlier that morning, Graham got into a fight with then-wife Mindy. Police arrived on scene, and Graham barricaded himself inside the home with a small arsenal of weapons after Mindy fled with the couple's four children, ages 11 to 2.
