LOWELL, Mich. – A man was tased Friday night after police responded to a domestic violence call from a child in Lowell.

The incident happened at the 200 block of Maple.

When police arrived to the home, the suspect, John Lee Crider, 25, had fled.

Officials were able to track Crider through the snow. They found him hiding behind a vehicle just a few blocks away from the home. When police ordered him out from behind the vehicle, Crider fled for the second time. Officials were able to catch up with the suspect, where they were forced to use a taser device, after the man allegedly put up a fight.

Crider was arrested for felony domestic violence, interfering with a telecommunications device and resisting and obstructing police.

Crider is being held at the Kent County Jail on a $15,000 bond.

    Bravo for the child calling… it means we are getting through to children about any type of violence and its unacceptable!!!

    • uneednewfriends

      you may want to comment how this supposed "abuser" was raising her children, which might I add were not his. How her daughter was crying about how they had no food in the house to this "abuser" but yet her mom seemed to have enough money to party weekly. Or perhaps we could mention how he was giving her money to keep her electric, gas, phone and etc. on because her money was being spent on "other" items. You may want to ask your friend about her dirt and wrong doings before you start condemning someone else

      • Lack of facts.

        Since when do we attack the victim of a domestic violence case? Crider has multiple charges against him and the one that jumps out at me is "HABITUAL OFFENDER". Go to Accesskent.com and do an inmate lookup on this piece of trash. You'll see exactly what the definition of a habitual offender is. This woman supports her kids and works damn hard to do so, while Mr. Crider mooched off of her and tok advantage of her generosity. Then, when he abused her, wouldn't leave her alone and constantly would show up at her house. He's a predator that should be locked up for a good, long time. Maybe that'll teach him to NOT HIT WOMEN and be a real man. Because all John Lee Crider is is a worthless piece of trash with no future, no purpose, and now: no freedom. I hope the last one stays that way. This world is better off without John Lee Crider.

      • Wthutalkinbout

        What does that have to do with him beating her? Nothing. We are condemning him for what he is being charged with. She was charged with nothing.

        • WIL-LIE

          HE IS WRONG FOR PUTTING HIS ON HER.NOW HAS SHE EVER PUT HER HANDS ON HIM ASK YOURSELF,I BELIVE IF YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR ON SOME ONE YOU DO NOT NEED THEM.NOW IF I TAKE SOMTHING FROM YOUR HOUSE DO YOU LET ME BACK IN.THERE A REASON SHE KEEPS LETTING HIM BACK,NOW YOU ASK YOURSELF ?????

      • guest

        if you want to spread lies and bullcrap around why dont you give your name. You are probably a friend of his and this is your way of getting back….how about the giant bruise on her daughters arm from him kicking her and throwing her brother around before they could get away to run down the street for help…just saying …ps he had no job she was supporting his good for nothing ass.

        • GET IT RIGHT

          GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT ASK HER WHY HE LOST HIS JOB ,OK SHE GOT HIM FIRED,GET IT RIGHT HE TOOK CARE OF HER WHEN HE DID NOT LIVE WITH HER EVEN WHEN SHE HAD OTHER BOY FRIEND LEAVING WITH HER LIKE I SAID GET IT RIGHT.

  • disgustedwithskank

    While I do not condone the actions of this person, we must also take into consideration the type of female who was involved. This is a mother who would take her children to the hotel to meet up with several different men, partying with these men, while her children were in the room. She uses alcohol and drugs (prescription and street) in front of her children, including taking her sons adderell prescription, causing her son to go without his treatment. Also lets please mention how this said female has a history of abuse on this person and was convicted of contempt of court for lying about the last supposed domestic assault.

    • What do you know?

      You obviously are extremely confused and diluted. This woman doesn't do drugs, doesn't have "parties" with men in hotel rooms, and has no history of abuse. I know this woman PERSONALLY and have seen the photos of the abuse suffered at the hands of Mr. Crider. The comments on this board are disgusting considering you're attacking a domestic violence victim. And I enjoy your anonymous name. You should be disgusted with yourself because this victim isn't a skank. She is a great mother, friend, and person. So you can take your little story about hotels, Adderall (not Adderell. Please learn how to spell), and how she takes her son's meds (she hasn't and never would. You claim is faulty, baseless, and pathetic) and shove them. Because obviously you're just as disturbed and worthless as John Lee Crider.

      • photo man

        did you see the photos of her having sex with john and his uncle at the same time.you see i have those photos and i will post some now what do you have to say .

  • karen

    Unfortunatly the abuse goes both ways, while I will agree with punishment for the abuser the law likes to just look at the man. Some women like to play the victim while doing much of the abuse.

  • sadworld

    How very sad and it just keeps going around in that circle. If you think SS will do anything your wrong, I know a 13 year old that has been passed around all his life and he has not learned any thing good. Has a bad attitude now and no hope in sight.

  • Witness

    What a joke. I know both of them very well. She left him after the last Dom Vio incident and he called EVERY DAY begging her for another chance. Those kids are spoiled rotten and have everything plus and the food comment is comical.

    She is the SOLE BREAD WINNER and has been. Nobody was injured except her and the children and last I knew… Innocent people didnt hide from the police and then assault the police. This guy has a rap sheet that is sooooo long and he’s a hot head that is violent. His own step dad had a PPO against him. Hmmm

    Oh and he’s currently on probation for Dom Vio against her. She had a big heart and tried to help him. He also assaulted her NYE but nobody knows about that. Also, why would someone with their own house go to a hotel? That’s just stupid. Also, her and her son are on the exact same med and I can tell u with 100% confidence that there were no drugs or alcohol involved on her part. Looks like his aunt is a little upset that the victim supports her and her family with her taxes from WORKING. slandering a victim and children that were assaulted is really classy.

    • Jessica

      The food comment is comical? I do not find it funny that her nine year old daughter was in my drive way crying about not having food. Was she lying?
      Nobody is slandering the victim or her children, I am simply stating the cold hard facts. Everyone wants to state what a terrible person John is but no one wants to state the facts about the supposed "victim". Has anyone pointed out how the "victim" allowed this awful person to move back into her home and watch her children everyday? Why would someone allow an abuser to be around their children?
      As far as being the SOLE BREAD WINNER did the victim mention that John quit his job, at her request to move to Lowell and take care of her kids for her? Did she mention how he was paying daycare for her children when he got his last job? Did she mention that she got him fired from his job after he spent all of his money catching her bills up and buying Christmas presents for her children? I am sure she conveniently forgot to mention all of that.
      As far as her supporting my family with her taxes that is a joke because she can not even support herself. That is why her checks are being garnished and she was coming to my home to pick up money from John to pay her bills. Get the facts straight on that one. People should be careful throwing stones when they live in glass houses.
      Lets just say for fun that the "victim" does have a script for Adderall does she have one for Vicodin? Meth? Weed? or any other drug that she does take?
      Last but not least lets mention that 1. John has not been convicted of anything and 2. The supposed "victim" has been convicted of contempt of court for lying about the last supposed domestic assault. How can we believe anything she says??

  • MuddyG

    This is all great and fascinating stuff, but can someone please explain to me when "interfering with a telecommunications device" became a crime, and what exactly does it mean?

  • Wthutalkinbout

    He is a grown man, no matter what the conditions no man should hit a woman or child. I don't see how these got comments got turned towards the female. If conditions weren't safe for the kids the police wouldn't of left them there. She wasn't the one who went to jail. Hope he rots. Maybe bubba will teach him some manners.

  • c

    I KNOW her and her children … all of these comments about her doing wrong? SHE DOESNT! She is a HARD working mother who loves her children and wouldnt put all of themselves in a ‘bad’ situation on purpose. Unfortunately you NEVER know what SOMEONE else is going to do! I know her and her children are victims in this. Having a KIND, CARING, HELPFULNESS HEART doesnt get u anywhere anymore. She is a GREAT mother and she takes care of her children VERY WELL! Good people shouldnt have to go through this. The nice people in this world always get the shit end of the deal!

    • I DO CARE

      OK NOT THROWING MUD BUT GET IT RIGHT.NOW YOU TELL ME LOOKING AT HIS RECORD'NOW TELL ME SINCE YOU SAY THAT SHE IS SUCH GREAT MOM WHO GETS DRUNK AT A MOTEL LEAVE AND GET PULLED OVER. JHON WAS ONLY 18 AT THE TIME HE AND HER WERE PULLED OVER FOR BEING DRUNK WITH THE KIDS IN THE CAR LIKE I SAID GET IT RIGHT.BOTH ARE TO BLAME.

      • Jessica

        Lets expand on this comment……
        John was 18 years old and the other party was 25. She supplied alcohol to him, a minor, then placed her children in a vehicle with him and allowed him to drive. This does not sound like a caring mother to me.

    • Mean

      She did put all of them into a bad situation, on purpose, when she allowed this supposed abuser to move back into her home……And your right good people should not have to go through this. Lucky for you, your friend was not one of those good people.

  • guest

    it upsets me that you guys are so hell bent on revenge but i guess it must run in the family lies and more lies…..what ever makes you feel important..sleep well????

  • Nunya

    Oh boy now we have the white trash wanna be obese aunt that wants to run her mouth. The same aunt that allows a crack head to watch her kids and have the state pay for it.
    Everything you have is stolen. Either from a goodwill dumpster (your husbands #1 hobby is stealing) or from friends that steal clothes for your kids and sell them to you at a great price! What a stand up person you are.
    You have been sleeping with your husbands entire family according to Facebook and some of the men that slept with your gross #%.
    Don’t you have food stamps to go sell? Maybe you can get the whole family on disability cuz lord knows ya’ll are messed in the head.
    Word of advice… Jenny Craig, frizz ease and you need to powder that nasty face of yours. I really don’t need to see my reflection in your greasy a## skin.
    Love,
    Your Wyoming friend. :)

  • Friend of the victim

    I would like to set the record straight here. Johns family is out to slander the victim here because their POS nephew is good as gone. John did this to himself.

    The victim has a great job and lovely children and a beautiful home. All she did was care too much about a worthless piece of crap she thought she could change and help. John never did me wrong personally but he was def not telling you hood people the truth. I actually went shopping w the victim twice for Christmas for her children and there was enough for 10 kids there. As for bills? That’s funny you mention that being that after the last assault.. He left her with all the bills.. Current and past due. His entire wardrobe was purchased by her.

    And for the record… I can say with 110% confidence that she RARELY even drank a beer. You people need to get your facts straight. I will be there at court to support her this time.. Don’t worry. And one last thing..on the contempt… It was due to forgetting a detail and its kind of hard to remember everything when your head is being smashed into a stove.

  • Embarrassed

    I am embarrassed to be related to John and my other family talking on this thread. I love John but ya’ll know that kid was dead nuts even before.

  • Former Coworker of Johns

    John did not quit his job. He was fired for poor performance. Let sleeping dogs lie. He messed up. Deal w it people…

    • Emily

      Not true why don't ALL of u grow up and stop talking shit everyone should worry about their own problems none of this bashing is needed

  • Mary

    I know the victim and the kids. I don’t know John well but I can tell u that all of the mud slinging at the victim is BS
    LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE IS A LITTLE UPSET, THEREFORE TRYING TO SMEAR SOMEONE’S NAME IN THE MUD.
    Says a lot about you folks that stick up for a man that on multiple occasions has assaulted women and also left visible injuries on two beautiful and innocent children.

  • 2013worldseries

    Bottom line is, this jerk obvisouly assaulted this mother…in front of the children. And for those of you who supposedly know that this woman was partying like an animal in front of her children, how is it that you knew this and did not do anything about it before. Now you are suddenly concerned about the kids? Yup, you're kinda full of it yourselves. Hopefully, the children will have some kind of normal life now. And in this crazy world it is not looking too good for any of us.

  • Joseph B

    She didn’t party at all.
    She works 55 hours a week and takes care of her children. No bars no drugs no anything.
    You people don’t even know the victim and her children obviously and must be going off the word of John Crider who is obviously a piece of trash. Grow up.

  • Katherine

    Pretty sure this is the same John Crider that sold his prescriptions to my friend every month. The prescriptions he had his mom get him through an urgent care center.
    Don’t know. Don’t care. Just sayin

  • Jessica

    Well slap you silly with all your "harsh" comments!! You have all just really hurt my feelings with your ignorant comments. When the truth comes out we will see who is laughing. Lets just wait for the next contempt of court to be passed down to this "poor victim"….

  • chalkboards

    Hey There. I discovered your blog the use of msn.
    That is a very smartly written article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and come back to learn extra of your useful information. Thank you for the post. I will definitely return.

  • poor children

    To all you people who are saying shes a drug free drink free woman must not know her because anyone who does and reads this are laughing because she has been a mess from the days she was a teenager. How about you find a way to help these children who she has ultimate control of their fate and up bringing. No one knows how many men she has brought into their lives and the alcohol and drug abuse. I feel as a mom i would never allow a man who supposedly beat me take care of my children. I am a outsider but i have seen him many times with those kids and he was amazing with them, Why would she allow him to watch them if he was such a threat. Instead of ranting about him or the disgusting excuse of a mother why not find help for the kids. Its pretty sad also that people have nothing bad to say about a person except their appearance so to the one talking about looks why dont you realize how ugly you are on the inside. No one really knows what shes like except those kids so to everyone she is fooling wait till you find out the truth if they have the courage to tell you one day. not from her mouth theirs. If your saying all these wonderful things about her Im guessing your kissing her ass for some reason it must benefit you somehow because if you know who she is in real life its a opposite story.

    • Tom Franks

      Jessica. The children talked to the police.. Don’t worry.
      All drug tests were passed and the contempt was due to feeling bad for the POS.
      BOTH PARTIES INVESTIGATED… Only one person is guilty of anything and its John. Maybe look for someone to watch your kids that’s not a crack head. Your own husband and kids dislike you. Why don’t you work on that!! You have bigger issues to focus on.
