... Police learned that Atkins had been involved in a domestic violence disturbance with a woman ...

... a court-issued protection order was in place between Atkins and the woman. ...

... Hahn remained on the scene and was cooperative with detectives ... Hahn was legally permitted to possess the handgun. ...


All's well that ends well.

... officials decided that the facts of the case will be presented to a grand jury to determine whether Hahn will face any criminal charges.
