NEW ERA, Mich. — Michigan State Police said they are investigating a case involving a suspect that drove off from a traffic stop at high speeds.

Troopers from the Hart Post tried to stop a man along US-31 sometime Friday afternoon. That suspect took off but troopers did not try to follow him.

MSP later tried to contact a man they believed to be connected to that incident. They also said he was alone and not unarmed when troopers approached his home near 3rd and Ray streets in the Village of New Era, though he refused to cooperate.

The scene was cleared around 12 a.m. MSP said they will be following up with an investigation in connection to that traffic stop. The man wasn’t believed to be armed or a danger to the public.

No arrests have been made.
