Police said Mark Hubbard, who is currently lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail, got into an argument with a man on March 16 at the Dairy Mart on Textile Road. According to police, Hubbard got into a vehicle that followed the man and he fired several shots while the two cars were driving on McCartney Avenue, and again on Tyler Road.
Hubbard and his attorney, Michael Vincent, will consider the plea offer extended by Washtenaw County Assistant Prosecutor Brenda Taylor and will return to court at 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 26.
Hubbard has been charged with conspiracy to commit assault with a dangerous weapon, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and carrying a concealed weapon.
No bullets hit the man’s car and no one was injured in the incident, according to police.
Hubbard has gone an unusual route through in the legal system. He went to trial on Nov. 7 before Vincent received more reports that caused the case to be delayed. Hubbard was then lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail once again after Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz raised his bail to a $100,000 cash bond.
Vincent also moved for Swartz to dismiss the evidence seized in the case during a hearing in September, but Swartz ruled all evidence had been seized legally during the police investigation.
