Sedalia Man Arrested After Threatening to Shoot Residents With Shotgun
On Monday evening, Deputies responded to the 14000 block of Carroll Road in La Monte in reference to a disturbance.
Reports stated an intoxicated male was threatening to shoot the residents with a shotgun. Upon arrival, Deputies spoke with the reporting party, who stated a male known to him showed up intoxicated and began threatening the residents.
The subject departed before Deputies arrived on scene. Information was taken from the reporting party. Approximately an hour later, Deputies returned to the same residence due to the intoxicated male showing up again and forcing entry into the home.
Deputies arrived on scene and took Jason C. Davis, 44, of Sedalia, into custody. While investigating, a third party subject on scene was found to have a Failure to Appear warrant out of Johnson County. Deputies also took Cathy A. Cawthon, 56, of La Monte, into custody.
Davis was transported to the Bothwell Regional Health Center to obtain a fit for confinement check. Davis and Cawthon were then both transported to the Pettis County Jail. Davis was placed on a 24-hour hold pending charges of felony Burglary in the 1st Degree, with bond set at $10,000 cash or surety.
Cawthon was booked in on her Failure to Appear warrant on original charges of Failure to Maintain Financial Responsibility with bond set at $250.00.
UPDATE: Cawthon's FTA was dismissed on Jan. 17 without prejudice in Johnson County Circuit Court.
