CALAIS, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a family disturbance call yielded the arrest of a man who’d been wanted for 12 years.

The trooper called to the scene of an argument Friday in the town of Calais discovered that 31-year-old Matthew Mitchell had an outstanding warrant.

Trooper Daniel Burrows said Sunday that a routine background check showed Mitchell was wanted for for escape in 2006 from Barre Probation and Parole.

Burrows said no one was charged because of the disturbance, but that Mitchell was taken into custody.

Mitchell was transported to the Northeast Correctional Facility. He could not be reached on Sunday, and it was not known if he had a lawyer.
