GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Police refrained from arresting a man who caused a disturbance at a polling place in Green Bay.

Brown County Clerk Sandy Juno says the man was serving as a poll worker at Grace Lutheran Church in Green Bay Tuesday when he began “creating a ruckus” and was telling people how to run the polls.

Police tried to convince the man to go to a local crisis center for a mental health evaluation, but did not take him into custody.

Press-Gazette Media (https://gbpg.net/1vIEEUo ) says local election officials contacted the state Department of Justice which determined the integrity of the election at that polling place was not affected.

Officials say the man also created a disturbance at the city clerk’s office and became upset when he was turned away after trying to vote at the Ashwaubenon village hall.
