Authorities say an armed Southeast Texas man wearing body armor and claiming to be an anti-government militia member has been arrested in a domestic dispute.

The Liberty County Sheriff's Office says nobody was hurt Tuesday in an hour-long standoff with Kevin Eugene Boney. His wife called 911 to say he shot at her outside their Cleveland-area home.

The Houston Chronicle reports Boney allegedly pointed guns at deputies, yelled that he was a "warrant officer in the Texas Militia" and said the officers had no authority over him.

Boney was held Wednesday on one count of aggravated assault-family violence and three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public servant.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Boney, whose bond is $700,000.
