A confrontation between Chico Police and a man suspected of harassing a teenage girl turned violent Wednesday night. According to officers, 44 year old Brian Michaud had been following a 17-year-old girl and her friend, making sexually threatening comments. The victim entered Dukes Cork and AND Bottle at 12th and Park Avenue to try to get away from Michaud. She took cover behind the counter but Michaud reportedly followed her in and continued his harrassment.
Officers who came to the store said Michaud was uncooperative. When they tried to handcuff him, Michaud reportedly fought the two officers, who ultimately had to use a taser to subdue him. He now faces charges of annoying or molesting a child and resisting arrest.
