GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Nov. 1 at approximately 12:58 p.m., officers responded to a trouble call at Chancellor Court. Upon arrival, they found a 22-year-old Grand Blanc man they described as very agitated and belligerent at a home that was in the process of eviction. The male was the grandson of the homeowner and repeatedly paced around swearing, yelling and threatening officers and the eviction workers, police allege. Officers reviewed the legal documents and found them to be in order and advised the man several times he would have to leave the premises, and offered him a ride to another location.
