The victim, a 50-year-old Belding man, went to the home of a friend on South River Road. Lester Heminger, 49, of Belding, also lives on that property.

An argument erupted between the victim and Heminger, which led to Heminger retrieving a long gun and pointing it at the victim.

Deputies arrived and apprehended Heminger without incident. The weapon, a single-shot shotgun, was recovered. No one was injured.

Heminger was arraigned and charged on Friday with aggravated assault. He remains in custody on a $2,000 bond.
