Armed 70-year-old man arrested for threatening tubers in Florence County

by

FLORENCE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A 70-year-old man has been arrested in Florence County after authorities say he threatened tubers on the Pine River Oxbox at gunpoint.

The man appeared from shore as tubers floated on the river on Saturday in Commonwealth Township.

The man told the tubers that the river belonged to him and that he was "King of America."

According to the sheriff's department, the man then pointed a shotgun at the group as they floated by. The gunman also confronted other groups of tubers.

Deputies arrested the man, who had two guns and 280 rounds of ammunition. He has not been formally charged.
