Paul was arrested and taken to the Union County Jail.

Sheriff Eddie Cathey released a statement: 

“Bringing a firearm onto a school campus in such a reckless manner is both extremely dangerous and a crime and I am thankful that no one was injured. Parents who are regularly involved in child custody exchanges should use caution and take advantage of safe, local drop-off points such as the Sheriff’s Office parking lot to ensure their child’s safety as well as their own. I am proud of our deputies who responded quickly and thoroughly investigated this incident which ultimately led to the arrest of the suspect.”
