On March 7, around 8 a.m., Lenz allegedly told emergency operators that he was “16 years old, suicidal with access to a firearm and being abused by family members,” according to a separate warrant.
The third call to emergency operators came at 6:45 a.m. on March 13 when Lenz is accused of calling in false reports for the sheriff’s office to harass his neighbors, a warrant states.
Lenz called the emergency operators on March 14 at 5 a.m. and reported that a neighbor shot a his family member, according to another arrest warrant.
Lenz is accused of speaking with a county communications officer and reported that a neighbor shot “her daughter in the face” and that she was on the porch bleeding, an arrest warrant states.

On March 17, Lenz called emergency operators at 2:30 a.m. to report that a 16-year-old male had overdosed at the residence, an arrest warrant states.
Lenz reportedly called an emergency operator on March 18 at 4 a.m. to report that a male had committed suicide inside a neighbors house, and that blood was on the window, according to another arrest arrant.
On March 22 at 8 a.m., Lenz is accused of calling emergency operators to report that a “dark-skinned female” with a firearm ran into a neighbors house, an arrest warrant states.
Lenz is accused of calling emergency operators on March 23 at 8:30 a.m. to report that a dark-skinned male was outside of his house yelling obscenities, according to an arrest warrant.
Lenz is being held on $30,000 bond. He was still behind bars Monday afternoon, according to jail records.
