An Indiana man was arraigned in Gogebic County District Court after an assault over the weekend.
Steve Barry, 42, from LaPorte, Indiana, was charged with one count of Felonious Assault, a four year felony.
Troopers from the Wakefield Post of the Michigan State Police were dispatched to a Marenisco Township residence Sunday on a call that a man was threatening a family.
Barry was reportedly in a wooded area near the family’s residence.
The family told police he had entered the waters of Lake Gogebic making verbal threats and approaching them. Barry allegedly had a large stick, and made physical threats to a woman – who called 911.
Police say he was making rambling statements of Satan and religion. Barry is expected to have a preliminary exam in the next 14 days and was assigned a lawyer the court.
He is currently lodged in the Gogebic County Jail on a $2, 000 cash bond.
