ICE agents detain Bronson doctor
KALAMAZOO, Mich. —
It is unclear why U.S. Immigrations Agents have arrested a doctor who works at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo.
The Calhoun County Jail and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website confirmed that Dr. Lukasz Niec is being held at the jail.
The Calhoun County Jail facility is used to house inmates who are under federal investigation.
According to the ICE website, Niec is an immigrant from Poland.
Michigan State Police records obtained by Newschannel 3 show one criminal case against Niec after he pled guilty to misdemeanor property damage in 1992.
Kalamazoo County Court records obtained by the Newschannel 3 I-Team show a long list of driving infractions and that Niec pled guilty to driving under the influence in 2008. That charge was erased from his record after he completed probation.
Over the last 10 years, he has had a number of tickets for speeding, causing a crash and failure to stop.
A domestic violence charge was filed against Niec in 2013, but he was found not guilty of that crime.
Newschannel 3 has calls in to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement for more information, but have not heard from them at this time.
