PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — A 29-year-old Ludington man was tased by Mason County sheriff’s deputies after fighting with them behind the Comfort Inn Hotel on West US 10 Saturday, March 13, around 6:30 p.m., according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

Deputies responded to the scene following several calls “reporting a subject screaming at motorists and looking in vehicles,” said Sheriff Cole. “When found, the subject attempted to charge at deputies. He was eventually tased and fought with deputies before being taken into custody.”

The man, who faces two felony counts of resisting and opposing police, was lodged in the Mason County Jail.
