South Branch man charged with felonious assault
PLAINFIELD TWP. — A South Branch man is being held in the Iosco County Jail after he allegedly threatened to shoot another person.
Brandon Scott Quigley, 35, of South Branch was arraigned May 31 and charged with felonious assault and felony firearms possession. He’s being held on $25,000 bail.
According to a report from the Michigan State Police, Quigley allegedly threatened the victim with a shotgun May 25 after the victim went to collect money he loaned Quigley.
Quigley has a prior felony conviction for a drug crime. The firearm was seized by law enforcement.
The police had originally attempted to serve a felony search warrant and arrest warrant on Quigley May 25. However, MSP Sgt. David Hall said the subject was not home at the time.
Hall told the Herald that because the MSP had received word that Quigley could be armed, its Emergency Support Team was assembled at around 5 p.m. May 25. The team attempted to serve the warrants between 5 and 5:30 p.m.
Quigley had a status conference scheduled for June 4.
