Baird has been arrested before as he was charged with aggravated battery on an elderly person in 2020 after his mother said he went on a rampage in her Lantana home, officials said.

The felony charge against Baird was later reduced to a misdemeanor count of domestic battery, police said.

However, that charge was dismissed by state prosecutors, authorities said.
