BATTLE GROUND, Wash. (AP) — The funeral for the Battle Ground police officer who drowned in the Columbia River will be held Friday at a funeral home in Battle Ground.

Police say a “celebration of life” memorial for Michael Molzahn will be held Saturday in Vancouver, at 11 a.m. at Brush Prairie Baptist church.

The 41-year-old officer was off duty Sunday when he jumped from a boat near Vancouver and was overcome by the current.
