NATCHEZ, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The family of a Natchez man jailed for aggravated domestic violence say he was not himself, and a change in medication may have affected his mental state.

The Natchez Democrat reports that 61-year-old Laney Wayne Dawson was booked into the Adams County Jail just before midnight Sunday. His arrested followed a high speed chase with deputies and Dawson reportedly fired at the deputies.

He was eventually arrested back at his home after a brief standoff.

The Democrat report quotes Dawson's daughter, Jamie Herrington, as saying her father had been acting strangely since a change to prescription medication he has taken for several years.
