Around 9 AM, Deputies arrived at the scene of the dispute and learned there had been an argument between several orchard workers.
It became more heated, and one of them pulled out a handgun. They waved it around and then pointed it at the other persons at the scene. The suspect then fled.
With help from Adams County Deputies, Franklin Deputies were able to track and locate the suspect's vehicle in Othello, and they were arrested.

After the house was surrounded and contained, the suspect gave up without any incident.
