PHOENIX -- Court records show a Phoenix man who reportedly got on a bus, rode it to a school and left a gun magazine with 15 rounds of ammunition on the bus was hearing voices and feared for his life.

The details were spelled out in a probable cause statement released Friday in the case of 29-year-old Jeremy West. He's charged with endangerment, criminal trespass and having a weapon on a school property.

Authorities say the man told an adult bus assistant he was with a boy who had also just boarded the Alhambra Elementary School District bus on Thursday.

The man got off the bus but police were called when a child found the magazine.

Officers say they later determined that the man approached the boy in his neighborhood Wednesday but was rebuffed.

Police arrested West after getting tips when news broadcasts reported a description of the man on the bus.
