18-year-old Matthew Morrow argued with his stepfather, Matthew Armstrong, on August 6th. Armstrong told MNPD officers that earlier that day, they argued that Morrow left the house through the garage. He said he thought Morrow had run away but noticed the garage door still open, so he checked it out. When he entered the garage, he saw Morrow with a bow and arrow drawn towards him, then fled for safety. He called the police, and they arrived to see Morrow inside the garage, still holding the bow and arrow. They questioned him, and he stated that he was upset with Armstrong and entered the garage with the weapon in his possession. He cooperated with all demands and excitedly told them he drew the bow on Armstrong. Armstrong told police that he did not wish to prosecute, but the police had probable cause to arrest Morrow anyway for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
