Four people have been arrested and charged for causing injury to a Macomb County Sheriff deputy.
On Dec. 6, the deputy was investigating a suspicious vehicle in the area of North Walnut and Jones St. in Mt. Clemens.
He witnessed an item being discarded from the 2007 Chevy black Cobalt and believed it to be narcotics-related. A strong order of marijuana reported came from the vehicle.
Jonathan Hadley, 22, immediately exited and began walking away from the vehicle. The deputy ordered Hadley to stop several times and Hadley reportedly ignored the order.
The deputy then attempted to physically stop Hadley, who began to run towards a residence. He was able to apprehend Hadley near the residence and was attempting to place him in handcuffs.
Hadley was actively resisting the deputy, police say.
The driver of the vehicle, Yahaira Elisea-Moreno, 19, ran up to the pair and began attacking the deputy, according to police. He was attempting to control both subjects and requested additional deputies.
At this time, a third person, 20-year-old Jordan Herrod exited the residence and began to run towards the deputy, striking him and pushing him into some shrubbery, police say.
Herrod then reportedly got on top of the deputy and struck him as he was in the shrubbery.
A second deputy arrived and began to assist the first deputy while several more individuals exited the home and began yelling obscenities at the deputies.
Herrod allegedly continued to actively resist the deputy by striking several more times, causing the deputy to deploy his taser on Herrod.
Additional deputies arrived on scene to assist. Hadley, Elisea-Moreno and Herrod were taken into custody and placed into patrol vehicles.
A fourth person, Diamond Smith, 22, attempted to remove items from the Chevy Cobalt and was ordered to place the item on the ground and step away from the vehicle. She refused and was taken into custody.
Herrod and Elisea-Moreno are each charged with a 4-year felony of Police Officer - Assaulting/Resisting/Obstructing Causing Injury. Hadley and Smith were each charged with a 2-year felony of Police Officer - Assaulting/Resisting/Obstructing.
The deputy was treated and has been released.
