The woman told the officer the fight was only verbal, but she wanted the man to leave her home. The man was given a courtesy ride to the Licking Police Department, and made comments about wanting to harm himself on the way there. An ambulance was called, and the man said he wanted to be voluntarily admitted for a 96-hour mental evaluation.

The man was advised he was no longer allowed to go to the woman’s house.

•Kolton C. Morgan, 23, of 14115 Crawford Drive at Houston. was issued citations for stealing under $750 and second-degree trespassing after allegedly swiping a game camera off of a property on Sand Hollow Road.
