When Paulding County Sheriff  Deputies showed up at the residence, family members let deputies in and told them Bohanan was in the basement and Paulding County Deputies said the man was barricaded in a room and when they gave him verbal commands, he did not comply.

While at the residence, they also confirmed that one of the residents at the home, Brandon Lee Bohanan (W/M, 35 YOA), had two different warrants for Probation Violation. Bohanan had a Probation Violation warrant (Original Charge: Criminal Trespass) out of Paulding County and a Probation Violation warrant (Original Charge: Theft by Deception and Forgery) out of Gwinnett County, the Sheriff’s office stated.
