The next day law enforcement got a warrant for the 57 year old man from Doolittle, Missouri. Then on the 13th found him in the afternoon at a business located in the 200 block of Schofer Street.

He was arrested without incident and faces charges for unlawful use of a weapon, assault/attempted in the 2nd degree on a law enforcement officer, and armed criminal action.
