Man Arrested For Trying To Grab A Police Officers Gun


BANGOR TOWNSHIP, MI (WKZO) --   A man who just recently got out of prison for grabbing an officer’s service revolver during an arrest, has allegedly tried it again and failed.

Child Protective Service workers checking a child neglect complaint in Bangor Township noticed that one of the people living in the home with the child was Toby Farley, a parole absconder and a wanted man.   As soon as they rolled up to the home, they saw Farley sprinting for the woods.

They gave chase, and during the struggle that followed, Farley made a grab for one of the deputy’s guns.   The deputies have trained in defensive tactics to prevent this from happening and it worked.

According to the press release, in 2006 Farley made a grab for a State Trooper’s gun and that time was shot.  He recovered in prison.

  34-year-old Farley will be formally charged today with being a parole absconder, resisting arrest and attempting to disarm an officer.
