Ann Arbor man accused of possessing Taser has 2 of 3 charges dismissed
The Ann Arbor man accused of sparking a Taser during a December altercation had two of the three counts he’s facing dismissed during a preliminary hearing Thursday, according to court records.
Ibrahim Ibrahim, 20, had one count of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count of carrying a weapon with unlawful intent dismissed. He will face trial on one count of possession of a Taser, records show.
Ibrahim was arrested after officers responded on Dec. 19 to a report of a fight on the 3000 block of Birch Hollow Drive. According to police, Ibrahim was involved in a dispute with a man with whom he had ongoing issues.
According to police, the man had come to Ibrahim’s home looking to fight his brother before Ibrahim and the man got into a verbal argument. Police said Ibrahim took out the Taser and “sparked” it to show the electric charge, but never used it to assault the man.
Ibrahim told police he was acting in self defense. The Taser was recovered from the scene.
Ibrahim’s next court date is a pretrial hearing at 1:30 p.m. on March 15 in front of Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz. He is free on bond.
