A 21-year-old Crockery Township man charged with pointing a gun at his neighbor in the Crockery Estates Mobile Home Park on Sunday evening faces up to four years in prison, if convicted on one of the three charges he faced when arraigned this afternoon in Ottawa County 58th District Court.

Andrews was charged with one count of felony assault, which carries a possible four-year sentence; aggravated indecent exposure, which carries a possible two-year sentence; and possession of a firearm under the influence of alcohol, which carries a possible 93-day sentence.

An attorney was appointed for Andrews, who remained jailed on a $20,000 cash or surety bond. Andrews was also ordered not to go within a half-mile of his neighbor’s home, once he gets out of jail.

Kloote said Andrews was scheduled to have a meeting with his attorney on Tuesday. A preliminary examination date has yet to be scheduled.

Police were called to the  mobile home park on State Road about 8 p.m. Sunday, when Andrews’ neighbor called 911 and said the man was pointing a shotgun at her.
Ginger Bayne said she had complained to the park manager earlier that day about loud music coming from Andrews’ mobile home all day. She said she was videotaping Andrews when he threw a chair at her home, then his whiskey bottle. Then he came out the door with a gun pointed right at her, she said.

Police evacuated the area and took Andrews into custody without incident a short time later.
