Charges were pending Friday against a Marysville man who made violent threats at Community Memorial Healthcare late Thursday before leading police on a search that ended with his arrest early Friday.

Marysville police chief Todd Ackerman said the 57-year-old man had been at the hospital for treatment earlier in the day and returned at about 10:50 that night to the emergency room, where he threatened to shoot staff. He then left on foot and headed south, Ackerman said, as police began to search for him.
