The incident happened in Wilson County at a mobile home off Highway 42.
Officers say the mother of 22- year-old Charles Michael Sasser called authorities saying her son had locked himself, his girlfriend and infant child in the house.

Sasser is charged with discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling, along with damage to property charges .
Sasser is in the Wilson County jail under a $25,000 bond.
