On Jan. 11, a Brandon deputy on patrol stopped a vehicle on S. Ortonville Road near Viola for a defective headlight and disregard of a traffic control device. The suspect said he lives in Michigan and drives back and forth to Minnesota for work. When questioned about his driving record, the man said it was OK, he had a couple tickets last year. The deputy asked if the suspect's license had been or was currently suspended, to which the suspect said he didn't know. A LEIN check showed the man's license was suspended. He was ticketed for driving while license suspended.

Happy birthday-not

On Jan. 12, a report of mail fraud/tampering was filed at the Brandon substation. The complainant said she sent a birthday card to her son in Illinois with a check enclosed. The son only received the envelope, with no card or check. The envelope had a slit that looked to be intentional.

Domestic violence

On Jan. 15, at 4:40 a.m., a Brandon deputy responded to the 4300 block of Fir. The complainant said her husband punched her in the face and she was locked in the bathroom. Her husband left the house by the time the deputy arrived. The complainant told the deputy she had recently told her husband she wanted a divorce after two years of marriage. The couple have a 15-month-old child in common. Tonight the complainant and her husband went out with friends and both were drinking. She went to bed in a shirt and jeans and when her husband tried to get them off her and she said no, she went to the couch, where he persisted. When she pushed him away, he hit her in the face. The deputy observed a goose egg sized bump rising on the woman's cheek, a hole in the drywall, and signs of a struggle. The suspect was found and said after the complainant rejected him, she hit him in the head ten times and he pushed her off. He said he didn't hit her. He had no signs of injury and the deputy arrested the man for domestic violence and transported him to the Oakland County Jail.

Liar, liar

On Jan. 17, at 7:41 p.m., a Brandon deputy responded to a rollover accident on Oakhill Road near Perry Lake Road. When he arrived, he found a Jeep on its left side, partway in the road and part in the shoulder/ditch. A man was next to the Jeep and holding on to a dog. He said he swerved to avoid a deer. When asked if he had consumed any alcohol, the man said no. A preliminary breathalyzer test showed the man had a blood alcohol content of .135 percent. In the vehicle was an empty 16 ounce beer can and a full beer can. He was taken to Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital for a blood draw. The man has a previous conviction for operating while intoxicated. The case is open pending results of the blood draw.
