Michael Hyde was convicted on May 17 on thirteen counts in relation to this incident. Original story is included below.

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested Michael Hyde, 28.

Hyde was the man Eaton County Sheriffs were looking for Saturday night in the area of I-96 and Mount Hope in Delta Township.

He was believed to be armed and dangerous at the time.

The Eaton County Sheriff’s Office says Hyde fired several shots at officers while fleeing in a vehicle on I-96 and I-69. One bullet struck a Sheriff’s Office vehicle in the windshield, only inches above a deputy’s head.

Hyde has since been arraigned and awaits trial on multiple charges.
