BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A Bay County man is in police custody after reportedly becoming so angry about dinner that he fired one shot at his wife with a handgun.

It happened at a home in the 5000 block of South Garfield Road in Williams Township at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

Bay County Sheriff's deputies say the wife called 911 from the couple's basement after an argument.  She told the dispatcher that her husband was "highly intoxicated."

According to a news release, the 62-year-old man was upset about dinner and shot at his wife, narrowly missing her.

Authorities said when deputies arrived at the scene they used a loud speaker to coax the man from his home. The wife was not injured in the incident.

The man is being held in the Bay County Jail on various weapon charges.
