Pepper spray lands man in jail

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On May 26 at approximately 11:45 p.m., officers were called to One Genesys Parkway for a report of a Disorderly person. They found a 32-year-old North Caroline male who had been brought to the emergency room after having been pepper-sprayed at a Flint nightclub. While at the ER he had been combative and purposely spitting and blowing snot at people and had swung at a nurse but missed. Security guards had secured him in a wheelchair. He continued to be combative and repeatedly asked for his lawyer. He was arrested on charges of Disorderly Conduct and lodged in the Genesee County jail. — P.S.

Feces argument lands man in the ‘dog house’

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On May 26 at approximately 5:02 p.m., in the 1200 block of Harding Dr., officers responded to a report of a neighbor dispute. A resident Grand Blanc male, 35-years-old, stated he had returned home and observed his neighbor, a 57-yearold Grand Blanc man cleaning up dog feces in the yard and overheard him talking about throwing it in his yard. He got mad and confronted his neighbor, whose 34-year-old son from Flint then got involved and threatened him with a pocket knife with an exposed blade. At this point, the young man’s mother stepped in and pushed him away and he left. The account was confirmed by witnesses and officers reported to the man’s home where he was arrested on a charge of Felonious Assault. He denied the threat and the weapon but admitted he got involved in an argument because his parents were being disrespected. He was lodged in the Flint City jail. — P.S.

Drunk driver resists arrest

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On May 20 at approximately 1:24 a.m., an officer running radar in the 5400 block of S. Dort Hwy. noted a vehicle traveling approximately 15 miles below the speed limit and who also had a malfunctioning license plate illuminator. He performed a traffic stop and observed the vehicle swerving across the lane prior to stopping in the 4000 block of Dort. The driver rolled down his tinted window just enough to speak with the officer and hand out his license. At this time, Burton police arrived for assistance and the man was asked to step out of his vehicle twice and complied on the third time. He was uncooperative and smelled of a strong odor of alcohol. He refused field sobriety and a Preliminary Breath Test. He was arrested and attempted to be processed but continued to refuse to cooperate for a booking photo and other procedures. He was transported to Genesee County jail and lodged after a blood draw warrant was obtained and samples sent to the crime lab. Results are expected to follow for charges of Operating Under the Influence. — P.S.
