(COLDWATER) – Sentence has been handed down to a Bethel Township man on fourth degree arson and two counts of assaulting a police officer.

Branch County Circuit Court officials says 27 year old Caleb Campbell was sentenced Monday to one year in jail with all time over seven months suspended. He was also given credit for 123 days served and placed on probation for 18 months.

On December 28, Michigan State Police from the Coldwater Detachment along with Branch County Sheriff's Deputies were called to 517 Block Road after Branch County Central Dispatch received a call from a man who said he wanted police to shoot him.

Officers arrived and found a trailer that was on fire. They were able to pull Campbell from the dwelling.

Police tried to handcuff Campbell, but he resisted. After a brief struggle he was taken into custody. Campbell told officers he wanted them to shoot him and was planning on pointing a fake gun at them.

During their investigation, troopers discovered that Campbell and his mother had been renting the trailer from an Amish family, who told police Campbell had recently broken up with his girlfriend.
