A Terre Haute man was arrested after a short chase.
Police say that 28 year old Melvin Bell faces felony counts of burglary, battery and theft, after allegedly going to his ex-girlfriend's home and threatening her with a gun.
The woman escaped out of a window and ran to a neighbor’s house to call 911. Bell fled but was apprehended on Terre Hautes east side a short time later.
Bell is being held on $75,000 bond.
He told a judge on Monday that it was just an argument that got blown out of proportion.
