Michael Richard Ondrovich, 37, of New Carlisle, Ind., was charged with brandishing a firearm in public, two counts of possession of firearms while under the influence of alcohol, and two counts of attempted assault/resist/obstruct a police officer. A charge of assault/resist/obstruct a police officer was dismissed.

Ondrovich was ordered to serve four days in jail immediately, with the rest at the court’s discretion. He was also put on probation for one year, and ordered to pay $1,340 in fines and costs.

Spring Lake/Ferrysburg police were called to the Holiday Inn at 12:20 a.m. that Saturday in 2011, on a report of an intoxicated man brandishing a firearm, said Police Chief Roger DeYoung. The man was arrested for brandishing the gun and for resisting police. A preliminary breathalyzer test indicated the man had a blood-alcohol level of 0.25 percent, DeYoung said.

The man was carrying a loaded Glock 9-mm handgun, DeYoung said. He did have an Indiana permit for carrying the gun.
