(Upper Peninsula of Michigan) – There were numerous assaults reported to Upper Peninsula law enforcement over the 2018 Easter/Passover holiday weekend including one that left a Texas man jailed in Marquette.
A Texas man – with a history of assault – is jailed this morning for an alleged Easter night attack at a Marquette, MI Bar.
A 911 hangup call lead to the reported assault at the Third Base Bar about 8:45 p.m. ET Sunday night, April 1, 2018 in Marquette.
“It was a 911 hangup, and then when we called back, the bartender said someone threw a pint, a glass, and started a fight.
When police arrived, they found the victim but the suspect had left in a tan Toyota with Texas license plates.
32-year-old Adan Andres Ocon of El Paso, Texas was booked into the Marquette County Jail about 10:30 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
The victim of the assault at the Third Base Bar is Marquette resident Jordy Maki, who had never met the suspect or the suspect’s friend before Sunday night.
Maki tells U.P. Breaking News that the suspect “chucked a glass against the back of the bar and scared everyone.”
“He then rushed at me and started swinging. I defended myself and the fight was broke up. I followed him and his friend Paco outside to take a picture of the license plate of the van they where trying to drive off in,” Maki said.
The suspect’s friend Paco “attempted to block the license plate as Adan rushed out of the vehicle to fight me again.”
“My jaw is really soar from being punched but for the most part I’m alright,” Maki said, adding he was pleased with the help from Marquette Police in making an arrest.
About 9:50 p.m., the suspect was located on the 1000 block of Cleveland Avenue in Marquette.
At 10:06 p.m. Sunday night, Marquette Police requested that the suspect be checked over for minor injuries he received in the fight and called the Marquette Fire Department and U.P. Health System-Marquette (East) EMS
Ocon has “minor lacerations” on a hand and head that were “patched up by EMS.”
The suspect was described as “highly intoxicated” but refused a PBT on scene of arrest at 1001 Cleveland Ave. in Marquette, MI.
A married father of one, Ocon has several arrests dating back to 2003 including assaulting a family member, robbery, resisting arrest, harassing a public servant, and criminal mischief.
Police responded to a domestic violence call late Saturday night at K.I. Sawyer, after a woman and child fled from their home in fear.
The called was dispatched about 11 p.m. Saturday night, March 31, 2018.
The suspect was booked into the Marquette County Jail on unknown charges.
He is 49-year-old Scott William Stewart of K.I. Sawyer.
Stewart has addresses listed online in Ishpeming, Gwinn and Marshal in Michigan; Milwaukee and Fitchburg, WI; and Decatur, IL.
About a half an hour earlier Saturday night, Marquette Police were called to an irate man who was causing a loud and aggressive disturbance at his daughter’s home, wanted to commit suicide by cop – and allegedly assaulted his daughter’s boyfriend.
“Her father is out of control and wants to be shot by officers,” the dispatcher radioed responding officers.
Police were called about 10:34 p.m. ET on Saturday night, March 31, 2018 to a residence at the Birch Grove Trailer Park at 500 Pioneer Road in Marquette.
Firefighters and paramedics were asked to stage at a nearby animal food and supply store.
The suspect agreed, then refused to come out with his hands up. Its not clear how, but he was taken into custody a short time later.
The upset suspect surrendered without incident, but could be heard yelling in the background as officers radioed to have hospital security meet their patrol car when they arrived at U.P. Health System-Marquette.
U.P. Breaking News is withholding all names from the incident because the man is undergoing mental health treatment, rather than being immediately arrested.
