Michigan State Police troopers who shot Ashley Novak in Hubbell on April 12th will not have any charges filed against them. Attorney General Dana Nessel says personnel from the Calumet Post responded to Novak’s home following a social media post. She had a pistol pointed at her temple with the caption, “If the cops come, it’s them, then me.” Police had been dispatched to Novak’s home before because she was threatening others.
Novak was outside in a truck on the property. She exited the vehicle but refused to drop her weapon. She walked back towards the home, where a man was inside. When she attempted to enter the residence, troopers opened fire and hit her in the midsection multiple times. All of the wounds were non-life threatening. Three troopers were involved.
Nessel says that Novak will face charges related to the event. A felony warrant has been issued listing resisting and obstructing state troopers, felonious assault and felony firearm counts.
