Taken from my local newspaper:
A Cannelton dentist remained lodged in the Perry County Jail Wednesday morning under a $10,000 bail after his arrest Friday night for allegedly pointing a handgun at several juveniles he said had trespassed on his property.
Cannelton police officers were summoned to the home of Dr. Joseph Walker, 55, at 8 Pleasant Valley at 6:35 p.m. after dispatchers received a call that several juveniles had knocked loudly on the home's door and then fled.
Police allege Walker chased the juveniles from his property with a loaded firearm and threatened to kill them. Walker allegedly detained one of the juveniles and forced him into his residence with a gun pointed at the boys head. Walker then allegedly forced the boy to call the other children on their cell phones and ordered them back to the house. He then allegedly held the juveniles at gunpoint until police arrived.

i don't think there is a lot that the teens could have been charged with except maybe trespassing. that doesn't give the dentist the right to take the law into his own hands though as far as the charges go he will probably take a plea deal for getting some of the charges dropped and whatever prison time he does get will probably run concurrently
