Charlevoix County Sheriff W. Don Schneider just announced that Corporal Fred Hasty Jr. has returned to duty.
Several months after Hasty was wounded during a shoot-out with a suspect, Hasty returned to duty on Oct. 26.
Hasty was allegedly shot by James Cook during an armed standoff that also wounded the suspect.
Cpl. Hasty went through an intensive recovery process from the critical wound that he received.
Schneider said Cpl. Hasty was very pleased with his doctors and support staff in aiding in his recovery.
Cook faces multiple charges by the Charlevoix County Prosecutor, Allen Telgenhof, with the most serious charges being assault with intent to murder and assault on a police officer with a gun.
Cook’s case is pending in 33rd Circuit Court at this time.
Sheriff Schneider is elated with the overwhelming support of not only the people in Charlevoix County, but those in all of Northern Michigan in regards to Cpl. Hasty’s recovery.
Cpl. Hasty is thankful to be back to work and serving the citizens of Charlevoix County.
