The father told police he was upset after receiving a FaceTime phone call from his son, who was crying and told his dad that a teacher had "slammed" him.

Freeman told the assistant principal he was on his way to the school.

An arrest report states Freeman arrived at the school around 4 p.m.

Court records said Freeman faces previous drug and weapons charges - and is set to be tried on those counts in April - after Palm Beach deputies pulled him over in 2018 and he said he was carrying guns in his vehicle, the Post reports.

An arrest report described Freeman as clearly angry, according to WPTV, and police said Freeman shouted: "I want to see the guy who slammed my son. I've got something for him", according to authorities.

According to a police report, a school resource officer contacted police after claiming to have seen a large handgun sticking out of Freeman's trousers.

School officials said when Freeman arrived at the campus, he threatened violence because of what happened. Freeman said he bought the gun from a friend and didn't realize he had it on him when he entered the school.

The father claims it was not his intention to threaten anyone with the weapon, and he had no plans to shoot anyone.

Freeman was arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a weapon, disrupting a school function and bringing a firearm to a school, according to online jail records from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

He is now being held on a $75,000 bond.

Should Freeman post bond, he will be barred from carrying any weapon. If he is released, he can not have contact with any Palm Beach County schools and will be on in-house arrest.
