Friday, Feb. 26, 2021 | Battle Creek, MI | (AMN) – Individual Charged with Resisting and Obstructing a Police OfficerAt approximately 9:30 a.m., Friday, Feb. 26, Tyshann Williams, 18 year-old Battle Creek man who was on bond from a previous charge, attempted to avoid jail by running from deputies, then removing his electronic tether. Checking in for the first time with Community Corrections this morning, Williams failed a drug screen and deputies were called to take Williams to the jail for not being in compliance with orders from the court. Fleeing from deputies, Williams broke through the main glass entry door to the Justice Complex, shattering the glass. An 18-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department who was attempting to stop him was knocked unconscious for a short period of time as a result of the broken glass and collision with Williams. When Williams left the building, he removed the electronic tether. He was picked up a few blocks away by Battle Creek Police Department officers. The CCSD Deputy was taken to Bronson Hospital in Battle Creek to have glass removed from her eye, and to assess her injuries. She is awake and her injuries are not life-threatening. Williams is currently lodged at the Calhoun County Jail, charged with tampering electronic communications, violation of bond restrictions, malicious destruction of property, and resisting and obstructing a police officer, causing injury.
