Sheriff Blotter May 25-May 31 2016

A semi truck delivering supplies to a business in the Dexter Business Park became the victim of road rage fueled vandalism, Thursday. While the driver was trying to get off of I-94 to make a delivery to the 2100 block of Bishop Circle, an unidentified white male in his mid-30s tried to get off in a mid-90s coupe at the same time. It tried to cut the truck off while both were getting off the highway on the off ramp. According to a Sheriff spokesman, the driver of the car failed to pass the truck and had to slam on the breaks. Then the driver followed it into the business park.

When the semi parked, a bald white man wearing black sunglasses parked behind him and got out of the car at 3:08 p.m. with a tire iron. He struck and damaged the tractor trailer portion and then got in his car and left. This was all captured on a surveillance camera, although the Sheriff doesn’t have a suspect identified at the moment. The case is still under investigation.

  • …between a son and an unidentified man… Hmmmm…..Glad we know the gender identity of “a son”. Most boys are “a son” to their parents, but not always.
