Police were dispatched to a residence on Louisville Road last night around 10:20pm after they received a 911 call from a female that claimed her ex-boyfriend was in her driveway with a loaded rifle. Police said while they were en route to the scene, the caller, still on the line, claimed she heard a gunshot from outside the home. The woman told dispatch she had two small children and was afraid to go outside.
Police said that when they arrived on scene, the man had already fled the residence and deputies began searching the area. The 911 caller said the incident began as an argument and ended in a break-up. The woman also claimed the man threatened to commit suicide while he was carrying a loaded rifle.
Authorities said that around 45 minutes after police arrived, the man drove back into the area on a nearby road, and stopped and started again a few times, acting erratically. Deputies quickly met up with the man and pulled him over.
Police then arrested Scotty Davis, 44, of Smiths Grove on counts that included: Wanton Endangerment, License to be in possession, and Convicted Felon in possession of a firearm.
He was transported and lodged in the Hart County Jail where he currently sits under a $3,000 10% cash bond.
