ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich. (FOX 2) - Michigan State Police are investigating after a man was shot and killed during a traffic stop Thursday night in Allegan County.
According to police, Joseph Maverick Nagle, 22, of Comstock Park, was stopped by an Allegan County Sheriff's deputy on 26th Street near 136th Avenue in Salem Township just after 10 p.m.
Police said Nagle and the deputy got into "some type of physical altercation," and the deputy fired at least one shot. The deputy suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the encounter.
