Man charged with assault

Van Buren County deputies responded to 906 Gaslight Road recently on a call that a man with a gun was threatening people.

Officers arrived to encounter the driver of the vehicle who reported that she had dropped Morgan Dowell off at the residence after giving a ride to him and a friend to pick up a tire.

Witnesses saw Dowell retrieve a shotgun from the back seat and point the weapon at George Bigelow who was at the residence, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Dowell, 37, of Clinton was arrested at the scene and transported to the Van Buren County Detention Center where he posted a $2,500 bond on a charge of felony aggravated assault.
