Former corrections officer heading to trial for assault on inmate

An Isabella County judge has ruled there's enough probable cause to send a former corrections officer to trial for assaulting an inmate in the jail.


Last October, Christopher Cluley was charged with two counts of misconduct in office and one count of aggravated assault.


In April 2020, Sgt. Cluley was working in the Isabella County Jail as the administrator in charge when he interacted with an inmate during a cell transfer. Video evidence shows Cluley grabbed the inmate, spun him around and pushed him into the cell door before then pushing him into the wall next to the cell door.


Video evidence also shows Cluley pushed the inmate to the ground, where an x-ray later determined the inmate suffered a fractured left knee.
