Battle Creek Police arrested a 44-year-old man on multiple charges including possession of a firearm while intoxicated, reckless discharge of a firearm and three counts of resisting police after responding to a domestic violence call.
Waste Management has cut its workforce which affects its curbside services. It has temporarily closed customer service call centers. In Battle Creek, all that means curbside yard waste pickup is postponed until further notice.
The department stresses that public safety services continue without interruption. But for non-emergency situations, or where there are no injuries, the department is asking residents to make reports by phone or online.
