Disorderly Man Detained By Police

By Patrick Sullivan | Sept. 11, 2018

Police arrested an oddly behaving 35-year-old Traverse City man after he showed up in a stranger’s backyard, yelled at her, and apparently tried to steal a lawn chair.

The woman confronted the man in the back yard of her Kelly Street home at 10:20am Saturday. The man threw away the chair and fled, Traverse City Police Department Chief Jeff O’Brien says.

When officers arrived, the man - who was wanted on a Leelanau County warrant for contempt of court - was not cooperative and fought as police placed him under arrest.

The suspect was taken to Munson Medical Center to be medically cleared. There, it was determined the man was on cocaine and methadone. He was admitted for treatment, O’Brien says. Officers will submit a report to prosecutors requesting charges for obstructing police and attempted theft.
