CARLYSS, LA (KPLC) -

The Calcasieu Sheriff's Office arrested the suspect they were looking for in Carlyss on Sunday. 

David Lee Butts, 43, has been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, according to authorities.

On Sunday, residents in Carlyss near Dave Dugas Road reported receiving phone calls from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office about a search for an armed man in the area.

The call came in after an argument between Butts and another man. According to officials, Butts left the scene and fired off a couple of rounds in the air.

Butts reportedly abandoned his vehicle and went off on foot in nearby woods and was later arrested by deputies near Armentor Lane in Carlyss.
