Branch County District Court • Coldwater, MI

By: MIke Stiles

A Bethel Township man who wanted authorities to shoot him has been arraigned in Branch County District Court.

Court officials say 26 year old Caleb Campbell is charged with two counts of resisting and obstructing, along with arson and assault.

On December 28, Michigan State Police from the Coldwater Detachment along with Branch County Sheriff's Deputies were called to 517 Block Road after Branch County Central Dispatch received a call from a man who said he wanted police to shoot him.

Officers arrived and found a trailer that was on fire. They were able to pull Campbell from the dwelling.

Police tried to handcuff Campbell, but he resisted. After a brief struggle he was taken into custody. Campbell told officers he wanted them to shoot him and was planning on pointing a fake gun at them.

During their investigation, troopers discovered that Campbell and his mother had been renting the trailer from an Amish family, who told police Campbell had recently broken up with his girlfriend.

The Bronson Fire Department was able to save part of the trailer and a nearby pole barn.

Campbell's bond is set at $50,000. A preliminary examination is scheduled for January 24.
