19-year-old arrested after assaulting officer


BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – A man has been arrested after assaulting an officer Saturday.

The assault happened around 1 a.m. at the University Park Suites and Oak Apartments in Big Rapids.

Deputies were patrolling the apartment complex for reports of parties when they found a 19-year-old man from White Cloud, flipping a couch onto a car which caused more than $1,000 in damages.

The man was drunk and ran from deputies on foot but became physical when they tried to arrest him.

Deputies used tasers but they had little effect on the suspect.

The 19-year-old was later found hiding underneath a vehicle in the parking and was taken into custody.
