Thursday, August 25 - A suspicious circumstance was reported on N. Lapeer Rd. Three subjects - one male and two females - were reported to be in a parking lot in a old pink car, with one of the subjects having duct tape across her face. Deputies located the car driving southbound on M-24, and pulled it over, where they discovered there was some sort of sadomasochism role playing going on between the two females and that the act was consensual. Neither female had a driver's license with them, so the male was told to drive home. The female driver was issued a ticket for failure to display a valid license and deputies advised the occupants that restraining someone's face with duct tape in public wasn't a good idea because it caused people to worry and call the sheriff's department.
