      Police arrested Michael Ballas Saturday morning after he was found inside a Clare business.

      Police were called to an alarm at Wood's Household Furniture in Clare and came across an open door.

      When officers tried to arrest Ballas, he fought back.

      Ballas is facing several felony charges including breaking and entering with intent to steal property, attempted malicious destruction of fire or police property, two counts of assaulting, resisting and obstructing police and a habitual offender charge.

      Since he posted bond, Ballas will be arraigned Tuesday.
