State police say a Felton man is in custody after being spotted in a field near a home on Sportsman Road where a domestic argument led to a reported barricade situation.
A retired trooper spotted the man Tuesday afternoon and approached him.
The man tried to flee the scene, but police say he was taken into custody with help from a officer with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.
Patrick Billings was wanted by Kent County Superior Court for failure to appear and will be charged with violation of a family court order.
Several residents nearby were evacuated for a few hours, and a portion of Sportsman Road was also closed for a while.
