Convicted of murder at 11, man wanted for exposing self assaults 3 deputies

- Police said they had to use a taser to arrest a man wanted for indecent exposure - but has a conviction of second degree murder from when he was just 11 years old.

Nathanial Abraham made national headlines for being convicted of second degree murder when he was only 13 years old. He was 11 when he was suspected of fatally shooting a stranger in Pontiac in 1997. He was convicted in 1999 at age 13.

He was released from state supervision in 2007. He's back in jail for allegedly exposing himself to a woman on Monday.

Authorities say a 46-year-old woman told sheriff's deputies that a man who asked for coffee and offered to cut the grass at her Pontiac home had his shorts pulled down.

"If you've seen him, he's a pretty big guy, he's got a lot of muscles. The deputies had a struggle with him. Ultimately he had to be tased to get him into custody," Undersheriff Michael McCabe said.

Abraham was supposed to turn himself in to police on the charges but police had to go find him.

Deputies went looking for him and found him near Montcalm and Baldwin in Pontiac. A Facebook video showed him being tased and arrested but authorities say he also hurt three deputies.

"One was a glancing blow to the head, one was a punch to the head and the other deputy had a cut on his nose," McCabe said. 

According to the sheriff's office, one deputy has contusions to his knee and head and will be out for a week. 

After the chase, Abraham turned around and faced deputies in a fighting stance with his fists raised, deputies said.

This isn't Abraham's first problem since being released from prison on the murder charges. In 2008, he was arrested for selling ecstasy out of the trunk of his car and in 2011, he beat up prison guards.
