CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) - Caldwell police say they have arrested the man who was shot and wounded by two bounty hunters after allegedly pointing a gun at them.

Police placed 26-year-old Marco A. Mejia into custody on Friday after he was released from a local hospital for a gunshot wound to the head.

Mejia is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

According to law enforcement officials, two bail bond agents attempted to take 25-year-old Chelsea M. Johnson into custody Friday when a scuffle broke out. Both bond agents shot their weapons after Mejia pulled a loaded gun out of his vehicle.

Idaho law permits bond agents to carry firearms.
