CLEVELAND (AP) - Police say they arrested a man at an Ohio casino who made a comment about his wife having Ebola.

The 60-year-old man was arrested at his home Wednesday and charged with inducing panic after making the comment at the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (https://bit.ly/1sV6QX8 ) reports that the man, who wasn’t named, said his wife was a nurse and had just returned from West Africa infected with Ebola. Police said he made the comment after losing money at a gaming table.

The table where the man was playing was shut down as a precaution. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Ohio Casino Control and Cleveland police were notified, according to the casino.

Police were quickly able to determine his story wasn’t true.
