The police have a really hard job, but I bet that some days it’s pretty fun. Like on the day when some dude you’re chasing makes it easy for you by plowing straight into a tree and knocking himself cold. That sounds like a riot.
According to the Michigan State Police, around 1:10 a.m. on Saturday, Troopers from the MSP Negaunee Post were dispatched to a home on Longyear Drive in Negaunee Township for a home invasion. The home owner initially woke after hearing a noise at the front door, then heard several loud bangs, and went downstairs to investigate. The homeowner then saw a male subject inside the entryway of the home. After confronting and yelling at the intruder, the suspect fled on foot.
When Troopers arrived, they were able to locate the suspect who ran into the woods, but despite orders to stop, the suspect continued to run away. The suspect was eventually located by a State Police K-9, lying on the ground unconscious. It appeared the suspect had ran into a tree, and knocked himself out.
Once revived, Jacob Paul-Daniel Roemer was charged with first degree home invasion and assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer.
