Jury Finds Man Accused of Assault, Standoff in Kalkaska Co. Not Guilty

A man accused of assault and being involved in a standoff has been found not guilty.

Brian Houtman is cleared of any wrongdoing for his role in a Kalkaska County standoff in May.

Deputies were called to a home this summer after getting reports about a man who had assaulted a woman and fired off several rounds.

A standoff then started when he went to a pole barn.

Deputies arrested Houtman for the crime, but a jury found him not guilty last week.
