Deputies found both suspects at a house in the area and told them to come out. Dylan Simmons came out of the house and was taken into custody.

Dennis Simmons Jr. eventually came out of the home but yelled and cursed at deputies, they said. He was taken into custody and both suspects were booked into a jail.

Dennis Simmons Jr. faces aggravated assault and disorderly conduct with a weapon charges and Dylan Simmons faces assault and disorderly conduct charges.
