Man arrested on outstanding stalking warrant

On Monday afternoon the Manistee County Sheriff's office received a complaint at the Welston Dollar General store. Deputies recognized Michael Danders, who had an outstanding warrant for stalking. Deputies waited outside for Mr. Danders after he checked out, however he didn’t exit the store. Deputies went in to the store confront him. Danders attempted to push his way through the deputy and was able to make his way out the exit. A short chase on foot ended with the deputy taking down Danders in the parking lot. Danders continued to resist arrest by kicking and biting deputies. He was taken into custody and transported to Munson Manistee Hospital for medical evaluation and was lodged in the Manistee County Jail. Danders was arraigned on Wednesday on one count of resisting and obstructing, one count causing bodily harm and on the warrant for stalking.
