On Friday, February 12th, 2016, at 7:48 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office posted that he was wanted for an alleged aggravated assault of a mother, her 2-year-old child, and her other young children. Godin, 22-years-old, has had run-ins with law enforcement previously.
Citizens from the area responded in a quick hurry. They started tagging their friends so they too could know about the information. Word spread quickly. By 12:36 a.m. on Saturday, February 13th, 2016 he was in custody. Cole Godin reportedly turned himself into authorities.
Oddly enough, some 11 hours before authorities posted his wanted information to Facebook, Cole Godin had changed his name on the website to Cole Dionne.
He is currently lodged in the Alpena County Jail.
