Facts

Jeremy Fisher (defendant) was observed inside his house, screaming and throwing objects. The police were notified. Officer Christopher Goolsby and other officers approached the home and found blood on the hood of a damaged pickup truck outside the home. The officers observed Fisher in the home with a cut on his hand. They knocked on the door of the home but Fisher refused them entry and told them to get a search warrant. Goolsby opened the door and entered the home until he saw that Fisher was pointing a long gun at him. Fisher was later charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm during a felony. Fisher moved to suppress Goolsby’s statement that Fisher had pointed a long gun at him. The trial court found that Goolsby violated the Fourth Amendment by entering the home and, as a result, evidence that Fisher pointed a long gun at Goolsby had to be excluded. The Michigan Court of Appeals affirmed.
