A Detroit-area man has pleaded guilty to charges in a confrontation with police officers while he said he was celebrating his release from parole on unrelated home-invasion convictions.
Twenty-four-year-old James Connell of Ferndale pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of resisting and obstructing police.
Oakland County Circuit Judge Edward Sosnick will sentence Connell on Sept. 23.
Ferndale police say officers responded July 22 to Connell's apartment on a noise complaint. They say he punched an officer in the chest and tore the shirt of a second officer at the station.
