MT. PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

A Michigan man is behind bars after a pursuit involving officers from several agencies. 

The incident started at about 12:40 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15 when Mt. Pleasant Police were called to the parking lot of Meijer to check on a person who was reportedly undressing himself and banging on his car.
