An investigation revealed that a verbal argument between Martz and the resident of the home had stemmed from a previous physical altercation in which Martz had injured the resident.

Martz was arrested and taken to Yates County Jail, where he was arraigned on an assault charge.

The incident is still under investigation, and authorities are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information about it to come forward.
