A Glouster man appeared in Athens County Municipal court Wednesday morning after shooting at police.

Athens County Sherriff Rodney Smith said deputies were called to assist Glouster Police after coming under fire while serving an arrest warrant Tuesday night.

Smith said police were trying to arrest Matthew Arno at him home when he fired on officers before running away.

Officers chased him to a house on Republic Avenue and were able to coax Arno out of the home without any serious injuries.

Arno is charged with felonius assault and criminal damaging.

Arno is set to appear in court again on October 16th for his prelimenary hearing.
