STANTON (THE DAILY NEWS) - A Comstock Park man is avoiding more serious charges in Montcalm County after allegedly letting his 4-year-old son drive a vehicle through a field and crash into a tree while the man was drunk.
Sean Bylsma, 34, is being charged with fourth-degree fleeing a police officer and assaulting or resisting or obstructing a police officer, both felonies with possible two-year prison sentences, and open alcohol in a motor vehicle and operating while license suspended, both misdemeanors.
A Montcalm County sheriff's deputy observed a 1994 Chevrolet Suburban operating with heavy front end damage the night of Feb. 23. Bylsma, who was driving, refused to stop for the deputy. The deputy pursued Bylsma to Bylsma's mother's residence on S. Nevins Road in Sidney Township.
