Cpl. Cheryl Bush said the man’s wife called police after an altercation. She said he was upset over some issues with his banking earlier in the day.

As a precaution, police notified the man’s bank and then went looking for him. He was found at the home of other family members after 1 p.m. and was arrested without incident, Bush said.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
