Gregory J. Williams, 50, was arraigned Monday on the charge, which is punishable by up to 93 days in jail. Portage police Sgt. John Blue said officers arrested Williams after responding to a report of an assault at about 11:05 p.m. Saturday. Blue said the investigation continues, and he declined to elaborate.
Kalamazoo County Sheriff Mike Anderson said an internal investigation was launched Monday by his department. He said Williams, a deputy in the jail who has been with the sheriff's department since 1982, will remain on duty as the probe continues.
