A Georgia man is in custody after he triggered an Amber Alert by taking his daughter during a dispute with the child's mother.

Robert Peeples, 39, was arrested Thursday night and charged with aggravated assault and kidnapping. The one-year-old girl was found safe and in good condition at his mothers' house outside of Atlanta.

An Amber Alert was triggered Thursday morning after the girl's mother, Tiffany Aycock, called police and said Peeples had driven off with her daughter after a dispute. The Amber Alert was active for about 12 hours.

Peeples' criminal history includes battery, second-degree child cruelty and disorderly conduct, according to WXIA-TV in Atlanta.
