MILTON, Ga. – A domestic dispute led to a Milton man’s arrest Feb. 9 for possession of firearms.

Police were called out to a Deer Trail home after complaints came of a loud domestic dispute. The caller told police the man was breaking items in the home and was in possession of several firearms as well.

Police came and calmed the couple down. Both allegedly had been drinking. A search of the home for other people turned up five weapons, including two rifles and a shotgun. The man in the home, John K. Bonham, 47, of Deer Trail, Milton, was found to be a convicted felon out of California and thus barred from owning weapons.

He was arrested for being a felon in possession of firearms.
