Police: Ex-Boyfriend Sought Revenge
By Patrick Sullivan | June 18, 2020
An anonymous tip led Traverse City Police to intercept an armed man headed to a local bar, allegedly with plans to harm his ex-girlfriend.
Someone called 911 with concerns about the suspect, a 21-year-old Traverse City man, and they tipped off police to the kind of vehicle he would be driving and the bar he was headed to. Officers spotted the gray Pontiac Grand Prix pulling into the parking lot of the bar and made a traffic stop.
The man was “verbally resistant,” according to a police, but after several commands he was arrested. Police said the man also struggled while he was taken to have his blood drawn at Munson Medical Center.
A loaded and unregistered 45-caliber handgun was found inside his vehicle and the weapon had its hammer cocked. The suspect does not have a concealed carry license. The man is expected to face charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, resisting and obstructing, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and drunk driving.Comment
