LUDINGTON — A 27-year-old Scottville man is looking at serving five months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term after pleading guilty Tuesday, April 12, in 51st Circuit Court to two felony counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police.

Donald Thomas Miller, of 203 S. Crowley St., was arrested on Atkinson Drive in the City of Ludington, Feb. 28, by two Mason County Sheriff’s deputies. “I jerked away from them while they were trying to place me in handcuffs,” Miller told Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

In exchange for his guilty plea to the felony counts, misdemeanor counts of second-offense operating while intoxicated and second-offense driving while license suspended were dismissed. Miller’s jail term will run concurrently to a five-month discretionary jail term for probation violation, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Sentencing is set for May 17 at 2:15 p.m.
