A Portage man who created a disturbance after not being able to immediately cash a check ended up receiving his money, but not until he was on his way to jail.

Police in Portage were called, last week, to the Chase Bank branch at Willowcreek Road, on the report of a customer yelling at tellers.

The customer, 35-year-old David Kohlmann, continued to yell at officers and ignored repeated warnings.

The bank manager reportedly told police a stop payment was placed on the check that Kohlmann had received after selling a vehicle.

The buyer of the vehicle was contacted and said the stop payment was pursued after she initially failed to receive the vehicle, police said.

She later received the vehicle, but had not yet removed the stop payment.

The check then was cleared for payment, according to police.

Kohlmann was told he would receive his money once the proper paperwork was done, but he continued yelling and demanding his money.
