He apparently became hostile after he was asked to leave and caused a disturbance.

He was gone when police arrived. They located him at the courthouse. 

Police say he made some sort of threat, but could not release specifics. Officers performed a search of Freeman's bag, but nothing was found.

He was taken into custody. Dalton Police, Sheriff's Office and Georgia State Police responded to the scene.
