ROBERTSVILLE, Mo (KMOV) -- Police in Robertsville responded to a domestic dispute call that turned strange Tuesday evening.

A man and his wife were arguing, and the man fired his gun into the air. Immediately following the shots, the man ran naked into the woods.

Reportedly, the argument had begun while the man was in the shower and he never got dressed.

After a brief manhunt, police found the weapon at the edge of the woods. The man was apprehended about an hour and a half after the initial call without incident.

Police say no one was hurt. The man was sent to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
