81-Year-old charged after struggle with officers

CAMDENTON, Mo. (AP) -- An 81-year-old Camdenton man is facing several charges after an altercation with police after he walked away from a Morgan County care facility. 

The Camden County Sheriff's Office says the man was armed with a gun when deputies found him at a home west of Camdenton on Saturday. He was taken into custody immediately, but fired one shot during the struggle. Nobody was injured by the gunfire.  

The Sheriff's Office said Sunday the man has been charged with armed criminal action, second-degree assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, felonious restraint, resisting arrest and unlawful use of a weapon.  

He was being held at the Camden County jail on $50,000 cash bond and $150,000 surety bond.
