Traffic stop results in deputy shooting driver

Joseph Maverick Nagle

Michigan State Police have identified the victim in a deadly deputy-involved shooting.
Police say 22-year-old Joseph Maverick Nagle of Comstock Park was killed in what started as a traffic stop in Monterey Township, near the border of Salem Township, around 10 p.m. Thursday.
The Allegan County Sheriff’s office says the stop happened on 26th St., north of 134th Ave.
Investigators also revealed that the patrol vehicle involved was not equipped with a dashcam and the deputy was not wearing a bodycam, so no video is available.
The investigation is now in the hands of the Michigan State Police, which said the deputy got hurt during the incident, but not by gunfire.
Nagle’s family says he had expired tabs, and that’s why they think he got pulled over. They want people to know this is at least the second time a traffic stop for expired tabs resulted in death in the greater-Grand Rapids area.
