Suspect charged in Hastings building fire

HASTINGS, Mich. (WOOD) — In Barry County, efforts are underway to remove the sheriff. Sheriff Dar Leaf was seen at multiple rallies with men now charged in the plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and some citizens feel the sheriff is encouraging the violent behavior and they no longer feel safe.

Concerns of violence from counter-protestors caused a protest calling for the sheriff’s resignation to be canceled. Still, some people plan to speak to the county commission on Tuesday, placing a formal request for the sheriff to resign.
