May 12, 2010 - Angry husband
On May 4, a complaint of harassment and threats was filed at the Brandon substation. The complainant said he had a relationship with a woman while she was separated from her husband. The complainant was also the responsible party in a 2009 larceny complaint in which the woman was the victim. The complainant's relationship with her is over. The woman is getting a divorce, but even though the complainant and she no longer have a relationship, he said her husband is threatening him and sending unwanted text messages saying he will beat him up or kill him. The complainant is also worried because the husband has called his probation officer and made false allegations in an attempt to get him in violation of his probation. He was encouraged to file a personal protection order.
She loves that bar
On May 4, a Brandon deputy was responding to the area of Ortonville and Oakhill roads for a possible drunk driver being followed by a witness. En route, the deputy was advised that the suspect vehicle was involved in a property damage accident at Ortonville and Seymour Lake roads. The deputy arrived at the scene to find a black Chrysler blocked in by two vehicles. He passed to turn around and saw the Chrysler attempt to leave the scene. As he was getting out of his patrol car, the suspect put her vehicle in reverse and came within a few feet of backing into the patrol unit. He approached the vehicle and asked her to turn her car off. She grabbed the shifter and began to change gears. The deputy ordered her to put the car in park and exit. She stumbled out of the vehicle and staggered to the rear of the vehicle. The deputy asked her if she'd been drinking and she said she'd had one drink at the Toby Keith bar at Great Lakes Crossing. She smelled strongly of intoxicants and would not submit to a breathalyzer test. She was arrested for operating while intoxicated, second offense and was taken to the hospital for a blood draw before being taken to the Oakland County Jail. The case is open.

The deputy made contact with the woman, who said she told the boys to fight. She said her son (an 11-year-old) was given a cigarette by the other boy at school and her son was suspended.
