Teenager Cited In Road Rage Incident

By Beth Milligan | April 12, 2019

A 17-year-old driver was cited in a road rage incident that stretched from Traverse City to Suttons Bay.

According to authorities, the teenager accidentally cut off an 80-year-old woman in Traverse City on Grandview Parkway. The older woman decided to follow the teenager to "tell her about her poor driving," according to the Leelanau County Sheriff's Office. As the woman followed the teen north on M-22 toward Suttons Bay, the teen allegedly cut the older driver off two more times and gave her the middle finger.

Deputies patrolling the area overheard radio traffic references to the road rage incident and located the vehicles at South West Bay Shore Drive and South Shore Drive in Suttons Bay. As they made contact with the drivers, deputies detected a "strong odor of marijuana" coming from the teenager's vehicle. When questioned, the teen produced three baggies containing suspected marijuana. Deputies seized the marijuana and cited the teenager. The girl's mother arrived at the traffic stop to take her daughter home and take control of the vehicle she was driving.
