On her way to the neighbors house the man fired the gun.

When police arrived at the residence they heard a car start and found the husband attempting to leave.

Police were able to stop the car on King Point Road and arrest the man.

He is currently lodged at the Cheboygan County Jail facing multiple charges including domestic assault, OWI, and reckless discharge of a firearm.
