An elderly man was arrested on charges of assault after he pulled a gun on his dentist because he became upset about his bill, police in Michigan said.

The Dearborn Police Department said that the violent incident unfolded at the Advanced Dental Clinic, which is located on Ford Road, when the 73-year-old man was presented with his bill.

At first, the man began arguing with an employee. The disagreement escalated and the suspect pulled his gun and threatened the dentist.

The employee grabbed the man and the two fought over the gun. The gun fired one shot, but no one was injured. Others in the office helped subdue the suspect until police arrived.
