Afterward, Lindsey reportedly went outside, threatened his father, and began shooting at the house and vehicles on the property.
His mother was also home when the shots were fired.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic assault and reckless endangerment. He is out on a $20,000 bond and is set to appear in court on November 29.
“This is a case of a domestic situation that turned violent quickly,” Sheriff Beasley said in a statement. “Luckily no one was seriously injured during Lindsey’s careless shooting spree. I am thankful that his parents were not physically harmed during his fit of rage and that our deputies and detectives were still on the scene to take him into custody when he came back to the home.”
Beasley also said domestic violence calls are the most common calls deputies respond to in Tipton County.
