LEE COUNTY, Fla.-  Kenneth Pearson made his first appearance in a Lee County courtroom this morning.

Cape Coral Police said Pearson had guns in his car when he went to see his estranged wife at Oasis Charter School on Monday. He was re-arrested just hours later, after texting his estranged wife, the act of which was against a court order.

Today in court, Pearson's lawyer came to his defense, saying he had no intent of causing any harm.
