A man was arrested in Mooresville Sunday morning after a seven-hour standoff with police.
The man, an active-duty U.S. Marine, in custody has not been identified. Deputies were called to N.C. 150 between Perth and Robinson roads in Mooresville after a man fled the scene of a domestic dispute and later refused to come out of his car.
The incident began when deputies responded to a domestic dispute in Iredell County. A man who was involved in the incident ran away.
Authorities later found him in Catawba County. When deputies tried to make contact, he led law enforcement on a chase back into Iredell County.

The man refused to get out of his vehicle, and a SWAT team was called in, according to WBTV, the Observer’s news partner. Deputies said he had a gun. His tires were reportedly shot out so he could not flee away again.
N.C. 150 was closed for hours but had reopened by mid morning.
