KOAM, the CBS affiliate in Joplin, Missouri reports Arne inherited nearly $2 million from his father, but since being diagnosed with mild schizophrenia last year there has been a family fight over his money and power of attorney.

The sheriff's office says Michael Arne was taken to Joplin hospital where he was treated for exposure. No word on if he was released from the hospital.
