Traverse City man charged with home invasion

TRAVERSE CITY — A Traverse City man accused of repeatedly forcing his way into a man’s home and fighting with a deputy faces two felony charges in Grand Traverse County, court documents show.

James Patrick Carolan IV, 26, went to a home in the 100 block of Holcomb Court on March 15 after he and his girlfriend were kicked out of his mother’s house next door, according to court documents.

The homeowner let the couple into his residence but told authorities Carolan acted “disorderly” once inside. The homeowner asked Carolan to leave and not return. The homeowner said Carolan exited but seconds later “ripped open the door” of the home and tried to get back inside.

The homeowner shoved him out. Authorities said Carolan busted the door open again, damaging the door, and then went after the man. The homeowner tossed Carolan out again and called authorities.

Carolan threw his belongings at a deputy when approached, court documents state. The deputy forced the suspect to the ground and he was placed into custody.

Carolan is charged with third-degree home invasion and resisting a police officer. He remains free on $10,000 bond. A preliminary examination is scheduled for April 1.

Carolan’s prior convictions include domestic violence, trespassing, disturbing the peace and being a disorderly person.
