Muskegon County Sheriff Dean Roesler said emergency personnel showed up at the man's Dalton Township home Sunday evening after neighbors found him slumped over in a chair. Roesler said the unidentified man perked up after the crew arrived, said he was "heavily armed" and didn't want "to be bothered."

Roesler said the man later jumped into a department vehicle, drove around his house and parked it behind the property. He then fired what is believed to be a high-caliber hunting rifle.

Officers used a stun gun to subdue the man, who was arrested.

No injuries were reported. The vehicle sustained no damage.

VERY suprised this guy is still alive..for being heavily armed and actually shooting a gun off and all they did was tazer him instead of shooting him..What about the guy with the sword?? Oh that's right..he asked to be shot. I don't know about police sometimes!!

I wonder if his house is in delinquent property tax foreclosure? There are just so many people these days just snapping and going mentally nuts! There has to be a real reason. I mean what is are the reasons? This is just too wide spread and our prisons are over flowing. Its got to be he was diagnosed with Cancer and his health insurance got cut off, then the property tax bill came due and then bill collectors showing up at the door. Its got to all those little things that are making people in our society just "Snap" and want to go to prison. If a person has Cancer they might just get better medical than they would out in society. That would make sense.
