Man accused of beating up uncle to face probation violation hearing in stun gun case
A Superior Township man will face a probation violation hearing Thursday after being accused of attacking his uncle at an Ypsilanti Township party store in May.
Madison Mealing, 39, was recently convicted of illegally possessing a stun gun and placed on probation. On May 30, police allege Mealing punched his uncle repeatedly for reportedly “snitching” on him while they were both in line at the A & W Party Store, 1011 E. Michigan Ave.
Mealing will be in Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz’s courtroom at 1:30 p.m. Thursday for the probation violation hearing, according to court records.
Mealing was arrested while meeting with his probation agent and is now accused of aggravated assault and probation violation. He was given two years of probation for possessing the stun gun, which he pleaded guilty to in March.
There’s a lot of history between Mealing and the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office — the stun gun was found during a search of his home in November 2010, which came about because Mealing had posted several videos to YouTube threatening violence against deputies. At his sentencing in May, he informed Swartz he can’t call police for help because they don’t like him and he can no longer earn a living because of his dealings with police and the court system.
Mealing has previously been convicted of assault with a dangerous weapon and possessing child sexually abusive material.
