Suspect faces 21 charges
Last week saw a domestic incident in the Fremont mobile home community known as Meadowview that led to the arrest of 30 year old Adam Thompson.
Thompson allegedly had assaulted his mother in the home and taken her phone to not allow her to call for help. She managed to escape the residence and when a Fremont police officer arrived he heard gunshots and called for backup. After a perimeter was established and neighbors evacuated Thompson attempted to escape through a bedroom window holding a shotgun and a BB gun. When he appeared to raise the shotgun a Newaygo County sergeant fired at him and Thompson surrendered and was taken into custody.
The next day Thompson appeared in front of Judge Kevin Drake who read the 21 charges against him, which included several felony firearm charges, assault on an officer, domestic abuse on his mother and resisting and opposing an officer.
Though no one was hit by the shots fired, the residence had several gunshot holes and the sergeant from the Sheriff’s department was put on administrative leave, the usual protocol for any officer involved shooting.
