Crockery Twp. man pleads to charges in gun-pointing case

A Crockery Township man arrested for allegedly threatening his neighbor with a gun has pleaded no contest to two of the three original charges. Joshua Curtis Andrews, 21, was arraigned Tuesday in front of Ottawa County Circuit Judge Jon Hulsing. In exchange for a no-contest plea for felonious assault and aggravated indecent exposure, the third count of firearms possession under the influence of alcohol was dismissed.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department and Michigan State Police responded to Crockery Estates Mobile Home Park on State Road at about 8 p.m. May 15 when Ginger Bayne called 911 and told Central Dispatch that her neighbor was pointing a shotgun at her, said Sgt. Bob Ruster of the Sheriff’s Department.

The dispute began when Bayne complained to the park manager about the neighbor’s loud stereo, police said. Bayne videotaped her neighbor after park maintenance told her to take notes about what was happening. She said Andrews evidently saw her and began to throw things at her mobile home, before the situation escalated and he came out of his house with a gun.

Andrews’ sentence is set for July 5 at 10 a.m. He remains jailed on a $20,000 cash or surety bond.
