Seaton "told deputies he had become extremely upset after finding out about the death of his best friend."

The man involved earlier this month in a 15-hour police standoff near Harlem High School, was booked into the Columbia County Detention Center Wednesday night.

Randall Edward Seaton, 27, a military veteran said to suffer post traumatic stress disorder, had been under medical evaluation for more than a week at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center at Fort Gordon. He has been charged with four counts of aggravated assault, criminal damage to property in the second degree and reckless conduct.
