The suspect detained at gunpoint during a home invasion last week has been charged with third-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of a building, $200 to $1,000.

Aaron Spence Himmelspach, 23, of Boyne City, was arraigned on Thursday Sept. 5 in Charlevoix County 90th District Court.

At approximately 4:22 a.m. on Monday Sept. 2, Himmelspach allegedly kicked in the front door of a home in the 1400 block of Pleasant Avenue.

According to police records, Himmelspach appeared to be highly intoxicated.

The home’s residents—a father, mother and two teenage children—allegedly discovered Himmelspach incoherent and sitting in a chair in the family’s living room.

The father detained Himmelspach at gunpoint while his wife alerted authorities.

The Boyne City Police Department was called and the suspect was arrested without further incident.

Himmelspach’s pre-trial has been scheduled for Sept. 10 and a preliminary examination is set for Sept. 17.
