Two Arrested In Leelanau County

By Beth Milligan | Sept. 11, 2018

Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested two individuals in separate incidents over the weekend.

In the first case, a deputy patrolling M-72 near Lautner Road at 12:41am Friday clocked a BMW going 73mph in a 55mph zone. The deputy made a traffic stop on the vehicle. While interviewing the driver, the deputy smelled alcohol and observed other signs of intoxication. Following an investigation, the deputy arrested the driver - a 57-year-old Traverse City man - on suspicion of driving a vehicle while intoxicated.

In the second incident, deputies responded to a residence in the 4000 block of North West Bay Shore Drive at 6:55pm Sunday on a report of a disorderly subject. Upon arrival, deputies investigated what turned out to be a physical altercation at the home. Deputies determined a 57-year-old Omena man came home intoxicated, threw pop on his 17-year-old daughter, then pushed the teenager. The man was arrested for domestic violence second offense; he had a prior conviction on the same charge in 2006. The man was lodged at the Leelanau County Jail.
