RODNEY. MICH. — James Hatchew, 55, was arraigned in the 77th District Court for assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

Hatchew refused to return snowmobiles to their rightful owner on 2/14/21 wherein deputies arrived to aid in the return of the property.

After their arrival, one Deputy was treated for a broken nose directly resulting from Hatchews’s refusal to follow orders or accept arrest. The Deputy was treated for his injury and is currently unable to work.

The suspect is on a $20,000 surety bond.
