March 17, 2016


LUDINGTON — An intoxicated kayaker who reportedly harassed fishermen along the pier last Saturday night; fled conservation officers in a kayak; and allegedly punched a sheriff’s deputy was arraigned in 79th District Court this week.

Alan Glenn Ross, 56, of 502 E. Danaher St., Apt. 3, Ludington, faces one felony count of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police and a misdemeanor of disorderly person. His bail was set at $7,500/10 percent, and he is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary exam, March 30, at 11:15 a.m.

Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said a Michigan Department of Natural Resources conservation officer received a complaint Saturday night of an intoxicated man harassing fishermen who were on the north breakwater.

“When the conservation officer attempted to make contact with the man, the suspect yelled vulgarities at the conservation officer and then paddled over to Crosswinds,” Cole said.

When a sheriff’s deputy approached Ross at Crosswinds, he punched the deputy in the face, Cole said. The deputy received a cut to his mouth but the injuries were not serious, Cole said. A Life EMS ambulance was called to the scene.
