Authorities said they were called to the 900 block of 6th Street West in Ashland for a domestic argument. It was around 6:45 a.m. Sunday.

A woman told the dispatcher that the man had told her, "cops are going to die," if she called 911. 

In case it was an ambush, Ashland PD says they called for backup from other departments, including the Bayfield County Emergency Response Team.

The woman told authorities the man had packed his things, which included a shotgun, before he left. Officers allegedly found the shotgun in the man's car. 

They say they looked for him in the woman's home, garages in the area and other nearby buildings, but they didn't find him.

He was arrested without incident when he tried to return to the caller's house a few hours later. He allegedly said he had gone to a friend's house to take a nap. 

He was booked in the Ashland County Jail on potential charges of disorderly conduct and threats to a law enforcement officer.
