Two nearby residents were evacuated as a precaution.
Deputies negotiated with Bodily by phone and with a patrol car PA system for several minutes before he agreed to peacefully come out, according to the news release.

“One victim had told deputies that Bodily had cut them off in traffic, causing them to slam on the brakes and to raise their hands in the air toward him. Bodily then followed the victim to the CAL-Ranch parking lot, pulled between them and another vehicle traveling with the victim, and pointed a handgun at them through the passenger window. The victims drove away and called for help,” the news release said.
Deputies were able to identify Bodily from security camera footage of nearby businesses that showed the confrontation.
