OXFORD TOWNSHIP, MI – On Saturday November 2nd, 2019, at about 2:15PM, an Oakland County Sheriff’s Deputy who was following up on a previous incident, was parked in the lot of Sweetland Transportation located in the 3000 block of Mullins Ct. when he was flagged down by two female employees who advised that a former employee had returned to the business and was yelling at the staff and disrupting their business operations. This subject had previously been ordered off their property and instructed not to return or face being arrested for trespassing.
The Deputy located the 51-year-old man, from Roseville, in front of the business yelling at, and harassing, drivers and staff. The Deputy ordered the subject to leave the property and refused to do so. The subject was in an agitated state, making irrational and non-sensical statements. After refusing the Deputies orders to leave the property, the subject was advised he was under arrest for trespassing and disorderly person.
When the Deputy attempted to take the subject into custody, he pulled away from the Deputy’s control and actively began to resist arrest. It became necessary for the Deputy to deploy his Taser, which had limited effect, as the subject tried to enter the passenger side of his vehicle parked nearby. After the Taser deployment the Deputy was able to take the subject to the ground and secure him in handcuffs. Once the subject was in custody, Deputies impounded his vehicle and discovered a loaded .40 cal. handgun on the passenger seat. The handgun was taken/secured in the OCSO Property Room. The subject was subsequently lodged in the Oakland County Jail pending criminal charges.
