Covington Police Chief Spike Jones says it's likely Vaughan was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. After being treated for his injuries during the standoff, he will be evaluated with the help of veterans affairs.

FOX19's Sara Celi reported live in Ft. Thomas at the Veteran Affairs Center where Vaughan was treated for PTSD.

Celi tells FOX19 that military authorities say Vaughan was removed from the military this summer for conduct unbecoming of an officer. Vaughan was also under investigation in Washington for cyber stalking and identity theft in 2009.

Documents show that Vaughan has a troubled history of domestic violence, restraining orders, criminal cases, lawsuits against the Kentucky Army National Guard and more.

Rebecca Williams, a neighbor at the scene of the standoff, tells FOX19, "He told all of us how he and his wife got into a big argument last year because he caught her cheating. I guess that's why they split up, and then he had a different girlfriend, that's the one that was involved yesterday."
