Hessel Woman Charged Following Alpena Township Incident

A Hessel woman is facing an assault with a dangerous weapon charge stemming from an incident last week.

Michigan State Police were called to a home in Alpena township where the husband of 41–year–old Jennifer Headley said she threatened him with a handgun while arguing at his brother’s house. He reported she then left the home.

Troopers from the St. Ignace post found and stopped Headley as she was crossing the Mackinac Bridge, believed to be heading back to Hessel. There was a handgun found in the car. She was arrested and brought back to the Alpena County Jail.

Headley is facing one count of assault with a dangerous weapon and was given a $25,000 bond. Her next court appearance is December 20.
