Van Buren County Sheriff To Be Featured On Television Show

Van Buren County Sheriff Daniel Abbot heads to New York next week to tape a segment for the A&E show, Live PD. He tells us the show is flying him out on Tuesday, and he’ll be home Thursday. The show’s producers recently saw video from a chase that Abbott took part in on August 16. A man accused of setting his girlfriend’s car on fire and pointing a gun at police was stopped using a pit maneuver. He’s now in the Van Buren County Jail on a variety of charges. Abbott says he doesn’t know exactly when his segment on Live PD will air, but it will be sometime in March or April. He’ll let everyone know when the show tells him the specific date. Abbott will be the first law enforcement officer from Michigan to be featured on the show.
