The nature of these calls have become progressively worse, culminating in his arrest on March 29, 2020, after he fired off rounds from his backyard.

That evening, Detective Jones prepared and was granted a search warrant for the house and patrol was able to recover two firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
