Jake Snear, 22, of Holly was arraigned Monday in Oakland County on a charge of felonious assault. His bond was set at $200,000.
According to the Holly Police Department, officers were sent to the 200 block of Lakeview Street to investigate a domestic violence complaint made by Snear’s father at 7:52 a.m. on Thursday, June 6.
The responding Holly officer made contact with Snear’s father at a nearby business, who reported that his intoxicated son, Jake, kept blaring loud music in their home and that he allegedly held a pocketknife at him in a threatening manner. Fearing for his safety, he left the home and called police. Police recovered the pocketknife as evidence.
Holly police and a Michigan state trooper went to the Snears’ home to talk to Snear. The officers observed him inside the home holding a club, which they also recovered as evidence. The officers observed that Snear appeared very intoxicated. A chemical test done at the police station revealed that he had a blood alcohol content of .305 percent, nearly four times the legal limit of .08.
Police arrested Snear for the assault and noted his black eye, which he claimed he received a few days prior during a fight with friends. According to Holly police, Snear had been arrested for a similar incident involving his father in July 2011.
