Armed man arrested after domestic dispute
A man has been arrested in eastern Christchurch after armed police were called to an altercation involving a firearm.
A police spokesman said officers were called to a Wainoni Rd, Wainoni address after 5.30pm, but details of what happened remain vague.
"It was a domestic incident involving a firearm," the spokesman said.
One man had been taken into custody following the incident.
Online commentators reported seeing "cops with guns" and a man pinned down on the ground after the event.
It was understood part of Wainoni Rd was closed and a detour was in place.
