Police Blotter

Getting ‘hangry’ lands men in jail

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Sept. 15 at approximately 9:06 p.m., officers responded to a report of unknown trouble with two males wearing black leather jackets in the 9000 block of Holly Road at a local fast-food restaurant. Upon arrival, officers interviewed the two suspected males who were outside the restaurant on motorcylcles. The 57 and 59-year-old Holly males said they had been riding all day and were hungry and upset about how long it was taking for their food to come out. They were cursing at the staff and a man in the restaurant had asked them to tone it down as children were present and they had then launched into a verbal attack on him. The males admitted it had probably been a little out of hand. They were arrested and lodged in the Flint City jail facing charges of Disorderly Conduct. — P.S.

“Treat yourself” is not an invite to theft

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Sept. 15 at 5:13 p.m., officers responded to a report of Retail Fraud. Upon arrival, they found a 62-year-old Mundy Township female to be detained by Loss Prevention officers who said they observed her in the cosmetics section of the store, selecting items and placing them on top of her purse in the cart. They then watched her go to the electronics section and select a cell phone and other items. She then went to the self-scan and proceeded to scan low priced items while bagging higher priced items and was detained prior to leaving the store. The value of the merchandise was $134.34 and when interviewed the woman said she didn’t go to the store with the intention of stealing but had just got out of the hospital and wanted to ‘treat herself’. She was arrested, charged with Retail Fraud and lodged in the Genesee County jail. — P.S.

Two beers equal DUI

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Sept. 14 at 2:51 a.m., officers on routine patrol at Westknoll Drive and Hill Road swerved to avoid a driver who was in their lane, executed a U-turn and followed the driver, who seemed to have trouble staying in their lane, and was driving 53 in a 45-miles per hour zone, prior to initiating a traffic stop at Hill and Fenton Road. They found the driver, a 25-year-old Durand female to smell of intoxicants and asked her if she had been drinking. She said she had two 12-ounce beers before leaving work. She failed field sobriety tests and was arrested on suspicion of Driving Under the Influence. A breath test was administered at the police department on which she scored .16. She was lodged in the Flint city jail. — P.S.
