The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a Lyons man following a violent incident late this week.

Michael Ellersick, 39, was charged with obstruction and resisting arrest after deputies tried taking him into custody.

Ellersick is accused of threatening to stab people at a building in Lyons. During the course of the investigation, he became uncooperative, struck a deputy, and was eventually taken into custody.

Deputies say Ellersick was transported to the Wayne County jail, then released on an appearance ticket.
