A Shingle Springs man was arrested on suspicion of offenses related to elder abuse after El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies received a report of a verbal dispute at a residence.

Deputies responded about 3:15 a.m. Friday to a home on South Shingle Road and found 47-year-old Charles Dave Bigby on the roof of the residence doing construction work. He told deputies that there was no dispute and denied any issues at the house, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.

When deputies contacted the other residents in the house, a 72-year-old woman and a 75-year-old man, they learned that there had been a disturbance. After interviewing the people involved and examining evidence at the scene, deputies arrested Bigby on suspicion of felony criminal threats, false imprisonment and kidnapping. He was taken into custody without incident and booked into the El Dorado County jail.
