Hair Pulling Cops Cleared Of Charges

KALAMAZOO (WWJ) – Two Kalamazoo County sheriff’s deputies who yanked a woman from her car by her hair have been cleared of using excessive force.

Sheriff Rick Fuller says the deputies believed Michelle Selbee was an armed suspect who had been shooting at officers.

Fuller says that an investigation by authorities from outside Kalamazoo County cleared the deputies.

According to Fuller, the officers believed they were in danger.

Selbee is surprised to hear the deputies have been cleared. She has a civil lawsuit pending.
