Police Blotter

Fleeing and eluding

BURTON — On July 8, a caller told police a gray Malibu occupied a male driver and female passenger who were parked outside fighting over a crack pipe. The car then left westbound. An officer saw the vehicle turn from Fairwood Drive onto Maple Road and go east. The officer turned around and got behind the vehicle. The vehicle then made a left hand turn into the parking lot of the Mobile gas station on the corner of Maple Road and South Saginaw. Although the officer activated the overhead lights on the patrol car, the Malibu continued to drive through the lot without stopping. The driver of the Malibu pulled onto S. Saginaw Street and proceeded to drive north, continuing for several blocks with the officer behind them. After driving through a Dairy Queen parking lot and proceeding north onto Columbine, the Malibu stopped at the corner of Columbine and Parkwood. As the officer approached the vehicle, he observed the driver to have his shorts and underwear pulled down around his ankles and to be naked from the waist down. The officer placed the driver on the ground face first and gave loud verbal commands for him to place his hands behind his back. The driver refused to do so. After several attempts, the officers were able to gain control of the driver’s left arm and place a handcuff on it. Then, an officer had to strike the driver in the right shoulder with a closed fist to gain control of his other arm and handcuff it. The officer located a clear, plastic bag in the driver shorts pocket which contained suspected marijuana. The female stated she was a prostitute and was picked up by the driver on Fenton Road, where she was asked to perform oral sex on him for $30. When she refused, she said he took her crack pipe and started smoking crack as they were driving. The passenger was transported to Fenton Road and released. The driver was placed under arrest for flee and elude, possession of marijuana and resisting and obstructing an officer. He was eventually transported to Flint City Lockup. — T.T.
