The man accused Hodgkinson of hitting him in the head with the gun's wooden stock and, as he ran way, firing once without hitting the man, according to a police report.
In the end, Hodgkinson was charged with domestic battery, battery and aggravated discharge of a firearm.
But the case was later dismissed, according to public records.
On June 3, he shared a caricature of the president as "Maximus Imbecilus." He was a member of several political Facebook groups, including one called "Terminate the Republican Party." One witness, David Thomas, said he had just left a YMCA gym when the shooting started.
He said he saw the gunman pacing from one end of the third base dugout to the other, firing multiple rounds then stopping to shout things like "get out of here." He briefly took cover with Laura Russell, then ran home, where she saw pictures of the gunman and recognized him as someone she often saw in the early morning at the YMCA working on a laptop.
