Deputies were called to that scene and his family told deputies that he had been walking around with a rifle.

Davidson eventually handed over the gun to his son.

Then, Davidson's wife voluntarily surrendered that rifle and two others for safekeeping.

Davidson was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation after that incident.

He was arrested February 28 after police responded to a shooting at the high school.
