Bonds were revised for two brothers, from McDonough, suspected of threatening 22 people with a gun.

Preliminary hearings were waived Friday in Henry County Magistrate Court, for Dylan Andrew Davis, 19, and Timothy Shane Davis, 24. Charges for both men were bound over to Superior Court by Judge Robert Godwin.

Godwin raised Timothy Davis' bond, previously set at $25,000, to $35,000, and lowered Dylan Davis' $100,000 bond to $35,000.

"There was a large disparity in the bond, which has been alleviated," the judge said.

Each suspect is charged with 22 counts of aggravated assault, as well as burglary, criminal damage to property in the first degree, and the second degree, according to their arrest warrants.

Henry County Sheriff's Chief Deputy David McCart said Timothy Davis also has a pair of probation violations from the Henry County State Court.

Attorney Jason Monroe represented both men in court. Monroe said he is in the beginning stages of the investigation, in support of his clients.

"I believe there is more to the story than we have been made aware of so far," the defense lawyer said.

The incident allegedly occurred Sept. 25, on Madrid Circle in Locust Grove.

Warrants for both men state they participated in breaking the front door of a resident's apartment with a pole.

"[They] participated in jamming a firearm through the doorknob hole of the apartment, and there were 22 victims inside the apartment," according to the warrant. "[They] participated in throwing rocks through the front window of the apartment, thereby damaging property in a way that endangered human life."

The warrant adds that the Davis brothers allegedly took part in smashing the windshield of the resident's car, and slashed its tires.

Both men were arrested by Henry County Police. No additional details on the case, were available from the agency Friday.
