(PARK TOWNSHIP) – A man has been arrested for assaulting police officers.
Michigan State Police were called to the 51,000 block of Lang Road in Park Township because of a suicidal subject who was also threatening to kill officers. Troopers arrived on scene and the individual displayed a long gun out of the second floor window of a barn. The suspect pointed the rifle at the troopers and St. Joseph County Sheriff's Deputies, threatening to shoot them.
About two hours later, the suspect left the barn and went into a field trying to hide. He was met by Sheriff's Deputies, and the suspect ran at the deputies with a pipe. He was tasered and taken into protective custody. Officers found the rifle in the barn.
The suspect was taken to an area hospital for a mental evaluation.
