Man gets arrested for going over time limit at Bridgeport Township Board Meeting March 4, 2014

A property owner in Bridgeport, Michigan was addressing his grievances at the monthly township board meeting when he went over the 3 minutes allowed for public comment.  At 2:40 into the video you can see when the police go to remove him from the meeting and when he doesn't comply in a fast enough manner for them, it sounded like they said he was under arrest for disturbing the peace.  When he reached to get his coat is when several officers then grabbed him. Once they removed him from the meeting room it sounds as if he was slammed to the floor in the area outside the main room.  You can hear it on the video tape.  This man was arrested for Assaulting, Resisting and Obstruction of a police officer, (a felony charge) and for Disturbing the Peace.
This man has had a 3 year ongoing legal battle with this township board. It involves the violation of his property rights, continual harassment by the township officials. The Bridgeport Township board has a history of recalls, legal battles, court cases, this is not a one time occurrence for this township.  This video is just another example of the abuse of power by this township and the police force.
