Michigan – Deputies from the Isabella County Sheriff’s Office investigated a 911 call last week that a Chippewa Township man pulled a gun on a man trying to repossess his car, and that the two had a brief physical altercation.

A 25-year-old man called 911 late last Wednesday morning to report that a 28-year-old Chippewa Township man had pulled a 9mm pistol on him in the 10000 block of Pickard Road, said Sheriff Michael Main in an email.

The 25-year-old was on the property to repossess the car, when the Chippewa Township confronted him. The Chippewa Township man pointed the gun at the 25-year-old and then into the air. When the 25-year-old told him he was there to repossess the car, the Chippewa Township man said he didn’t care, Main said.

The Chippewa Township man went into the house, and the 25-year-old got into the drivers side. The Chippewa Township man came back outside without the gun, and pulled the 25-year-old out of the car.

The two struggled and the 25-year-old man put the Chippewa Township man into a headlock on the ground, Main said. He held him there after the Chippewa Township man said he planned to kill the 25-year-old.

When deputies interviewed the Chippewa Township man, he told them that he put the gun away when he realized the other man wasn’t there to steal the car. He denied assaulting the other man.

A report about the incident was forwarded to the Isabella County Prosecutor’s Office.
