According to reports, he was released on $5,000 bond.

The victim’s mother told police that the suspect licked her daughter’s ear while she was trick-or-treating at his home. When the child ran home, the suspect allegedly followed her and tried to get into the home.

The mother pushed the suspect back before pointing a gun at her and pulling the trigger, but thankfully the gun didn’t fire.

Paines went back to his house, where he was arrested. Police seized four firearms from his home while executing a search warrant.
