      Man pleads guilty to assaulting girlfriend

      The Kingsford man facing charges of resisting and obstructing an officer and domestic violence, who was scheduled to be on trial on Monday, has now pled guilty.

      Twenty-seven-year-old Michael Harvala was scheduled to have his trial on Monday and Tuesday on counts of domestic violence and resisting and obstructing an officer, but instead has entered a guilty plea to both counts.

      The charges stem from a dispute where, after assaulting his girlfriend, Harvala fled from officers who had to force him to the ground.

      He faces sentencing on August 6 at 9 a.m.
