Deputies say that Goodrich fought with deputies when they came to his home to take him into custody. He is charged with harassment, criminal mischief, criminal obstruction of breathing, and resisting arrest.

Goodrich was taken to Wayne County Jail and arraigned. He will appear in court in the Town of Arcadia later.
