A Courtland Township man arrested earlier this year on shoplifting charges was involved in a standoff with police Saturday after a domestic dispute.
Kent County Sheriff Deputies responded to a home in the 12000 block of Harvest Lane (near Northland and 15 Mile) early Saturday morning, April 13, at about 1 a.m. after a domestic assault. The suspect, Floyd Frank McCauley, 34, had fled in a car before deputies arrived. Police determined that an assault had indeed occurred, and tried to locate the suspect. The victim and her children were moved to a safe location until the suspect could be found.
At around 10 a.m., deputies saw the man’s vehicle back at his residence, and attempted to make contact with him through a loudspeaker but were unsuccessful. There was concern that he may have armed himself with a firearm that was missing. Deputies eventually made contact him through the telephone, and negotiated his surrender. He was then taken into custody without incident. The firearm was found at another location.
Cedar Springs Police assisted the Kent County Sheriff Department at the scene.
McCauley was charged with one count of domestic violence, third offense, and interrupting a 911 call. He was arraigned Monday, April 15, and bond was set at $100,000 cash/surety.
McCauley was previously arrested by Cedar Springs Police in January for retail fraud at White Creek Lumber and Tractor Supply.
