Joseph Patterson is back in jail, a place he will likely become very familiar with over the next few years.
The 28-year old was initially arrested in Sioux Falls, South Dakota last October in connection with the death of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's 2-year old son, Tyrese Ruffin.
Patterson, who was dating Ruffin's mother, was was babysitting the child at the time he was fatally injured. Patterson called 911 to report the boy was choking. Doctors at the hospital determined that the injuries were not accidental.
Patterson was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated assault on an infant. His bail was set at $750,000.
He bonded out of jail, but was arrested again on Wednesday, June 25. This time he's accused of abducting Ruffin's mother and "attempting to induce serious bodily harm by applying pressure on her throat and neck, or by blocking her nose or mouth", according to KSFY. He's also charged with causing "property damage in the amount of $400 or less and one count of interference with emergency communication for interrupting another person's use of a communication device while seeking emergency aid."
He's currently being held at Minnehaha County Jail on $1 million cash bond. His trial for the murder of Tyrese Ruffin begins in October.
