Man Who Allegedly Pointed Gun At Wife Captured

Last updated on Sunday, May 5, 2013

(CROTHERSVILLE) - The search for a 36-year-old man who fled from police after a report of a domestic dispute Thursday morning in Crothersville ended with his capture that night.

Curtis G. Collman of Crothersville was captured by Jackson County Reserve Officer Charlie Murphy as Collman walked along State Road 256 west of Austin in Jackson County.

"He was about 500 feet from the Jackson-Washington county line, and I assumed he was probably heading to Washington County across the bridge," Murphy said Friday. "He seemed in a daze, though. I asked if he knew where he was, and he said he didn't."

Police began their manhunt after an incident in which Collman reportedly pointed a handgun at his wife early Thursday and led officers on a high-speed chase.
