BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) - A man who was shot by a police officer during a burglary investigation has now been charged for the break-in.
Joseph Jeremy Johnson, 24, was arraigned Tuesday on 11 counts, including assault with a deadly weapon less than murder, home invasion, armed robbery, felony firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, felon in a possession of a firearm and firing/discharging a weapon in a building.
On Jan. 3, he pleaded no-contest to five of the 11 counts. The other six were dropped. He is set for sentencing Feb. 3.
Johnson was shot July 14 after police say he refused to cooperate as they tried to detain him near the scene of the crime -- 100 block of Rittenhouse Avenue in Battle Creek. They spotted Johnson in his vehicle nearby. He got out of his vehicle while holding a firearm.
Police said they ordered several times for Johnson not to move, but he refused and started to run away. That is when one of the officers shot at Johnson, hitting him.
Johnson has served time behind bars in the past. He was sentenced in 2006 on a marijuana charge.
