HAMLIN TOWNSHIP — A 42-year-old Ludington man was arrested on a charge of felonious assault on law enforcement after allegedly pointing a rifle at Mason County sheriff’s deputies Monday evening, Nov. 9, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

The incident happened shortly before 8:30 p.m. in the 6800 block of West Decker Road after deputies responded to a reported suicidal person call with children present.

“Upon arrival of deputies, the subject allegedly exited the house with a rifle and pointed it at deputies, refusing to lower the gun after several orders to do so,” said Sheriff Cole. “He then went back in the house. The subject eventually exited the house and was taken into custody.”
