Wichita County Sheriff David Duke said the sheriff's office received information Brasher was firing shots on his property, and residents in the area were concerned and frightened.

Reportedly, Brasher was shooting off his front porch and shot a stray dog.

A search warrant was obtained on July 8, and firearms were found in the home, along with ammunition, which is a felony offense for a person convicted of a felony.

Brasher could revoke his probation and be imprisoned if found guilty of these charges.

Brasher faced 13 charges related to sexual misconduct with inmates, violation of inmates' civil rights, compelling prostitution, and other charges in 2021. He avoided trial by pleading guilty to some of the charges and got five years of probation.
