Police identify Battle Creek man involved in barricade situation
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're learning more about a man who barricaded himself inside his Battle Creek apartment last week trying to avoid police.
Police have identified him as 31-year-old Alan Parlier.
On Friday, March 10, police spent three hours trying to arrest him on a warrant for assaulting an officer.
Parlier is scheduled to make his next court appearance on March 28th.
The Calhoun County Prosecuting Attorney tells us he could face up to 15 years in prison for this latest charge of assaulting an officer, because he's done it twice before.
State records show Parlier served prison time for assaulting an officer in September 2012 and January 2013.
Police are revealing very few details about his latest arrest, because the case is still being investigated.
On Friday, March 10, an officer tried to arrest Parlier at his apartment on Cliff Street, but he refused to surrender.
Dozens of police, a SWAT team, and a K-9 unit arrived on scene and spent three hours trying to convince him to come out.
Police eventually sent in a dog, and Parlier was taken to the Calhoun County Jail.
Police say Parlier was under the influence of drugs.
He will make his next court appearance on March 28, and he faces multiple felony charges.
