East Jordan teenager charged with resisting, kicking

TRAVERSE CITY — An East Jordan man is charged with a felony after authorities said he resisted arrest and kicked a deputy in the leg.

Antrim County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a Jordan Township home June 10 on a warrant arrest for Darren Bradley McWatters, 17.

McWatters became aggressive after he was handcuffed behind his back, court documents state. Deputies said he yelled and tried to pull away as they escorted him to the patrol car.

“He then kicked (the deputy) in the leg and became uncontrollable at which time he was dynamically escorted to the ground,” according to a probable cause document.

Deputies said McWatters continued to act violently in the vehicle and struck his head against the cage and window.

He is charged with assaulting, resisting or obstructing a police officer causing injury, a four-year felony. McWatters remains lodged in Antrim County’s jail on 10 percent of a $10,000 bond.

A preliminary examination is set for June 27.
