Reckless Driver Arrested In Kingsley

By Patrick Sullivan | Oct. 8, 2019

A 40-year-old Suttons Bay man was tasered and jailed after some wild driving through Kingsley Sunday evening.

Witnesses called 911 about someone driving erratically through Kingsley at a little past 6pm. The vehicle was swerving and crossing the center line, and witnesses said the driver drove into the front yard of a Subway restaurant and crashed into a fence, Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Sgt. Chris Oosse says.

The vehicle next backed out of the Subway, headed north, driving erratically through town until winding up the cemetery on M-113, where the driver struck another fence. The vehicle was parked at the Northland Food Store when deputies arrived and confronted the driver, who Oosse says did not cooperate. He was tasered, taken to jail for a blood-alcohol blood draw, and taken to jail.
