BAY CITY, Mich. — Bay City Police Officer Michael Socia found himself in a scuffle with a 50-year-old woman on Thursday when he went to serve her a mental health petition for hospitalization.

The woman, who lives in the 100 block of North Union Street, resisted Socia's attempts to serve her the papers, allegedly hitting the officer over the head with a snow shovel and sending him to the hospital instead, according to police and family members.
