The 21 year old Fort Gratiot Township man who led police on a chase following a domestic assault in Marysville was arraigned this week in 72nd District Court. According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, Cory Herman is accused of domestic violence in an incident which began in the early hours this week in the 600 block of Carolina in Marysville. Herman had left that house prior to Marysville officers’ arrival. A be on the lookout was issued for Herman, who was driving a white Mitsubishi Eclipse. About 20 minutes later, a St. Clair County Sheriff’s deputy saw the vehicle and had the vehicle pulled over on 24th Avenue in Fort Gratiot Township. When the deputy ordered the man from his vehicle, Herman sped away in the car northbound on 24th. A short time later, Herman’s car caught fire. Herman eventually lost control of the car and crashed into a tree in the 5500 block of Lakeshore Road. The deputy pulled him from the vehicle, placed him under arrest. After placing him in the patrol car, Herman kicked the deputy in the chest and kneed the deputy in the head. Herman is charged with one count of aggravated assault in the Marysville case, with a one-thousand dollar cash/surety bond. He is also charged with 3rd degree fleeing and eluding police, assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer with injury, assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer and operating while impaired. Bond was set at 10-thousand dollars cash/surety on those charges. Herman’s next court date is scheduled for January 10th at 9:30 a.m.
