Sheriff Brad White sought the assistance of the GBI due to the nature of the threat. At the time of his arrest, Hudgins was on first offender probation following a previous conviction . When the warrant service team went to the home to arrest Hudgins, they found seven firearms he was prohibited from possessing due to his probationary status. They also found over three ounces of methamphetamine and a quantity of marijuana in an outbuilding on the property. Hudgins went to jail charged with terroristic threats and acts, theft by receiving a stolen firearm, seven counts of possession of a firearm by a first offender probationer, trafficking in methamphetamine and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. He was denied bond and bound over to superior court at a magistrate court hearing last week. A second man, 41-year-old Troy Guy Peacock of 2586 Willis Rd., was found at the residence. It was determined he was wanted on a probation violation warrant. He is being held on charges of trafficking in meth and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and was also denied bond.
