More information provided by the spouse included that the subject was in possession of a firearm, and had left the residence and gone into a marsh, wildland area of the property.  Responding Officers backed out and started a perimeter, and the Green Lake County Combined Tactical Unit was requested to assist in locating the subject.  Phone contact was made and lost several times, and at 10:03pm the subject voluntarily surrendered to the team.  The subject was taken into custody on an Emergency Detention and transported to a Medical facility for evaluation.  Due to confidentiality of the emergency detention, the name and address of the subject are withheld.
