Father-son dispute leads to arrest in Solon

Alcohol was a factor in two incidents Sunday that ended in two arrests.

Shortly before midnight Sunday, deputies responded to a residence on E. Lincoln Road in Solon Township, after a report of a disorderly man.

Upon arrival, deputies interviewed the residents and discovered a domestic disturbance had occurred.

During the investigation it was determined that a 26-year-old man, who was intoxicated, had become angry, punching a hole in the wall and threatened to kill his father.

The man then attempted to strike his father, but was unsuccessful.

The father was able to push his son out of the house, after which the son broke out a window in a vehicle parked in the driveway.

The 26-year-old man was placed under arrest for domestic assault and was lodged in the Leelanau County Jail.

A couple of hours earlier, a deputy on patrol through an Office of Highway Safety and Planning grant, stopped a 2016 black BMW for a speed violation on M-22 north of Cherry Bend Road.

The grant provided funding for additional patrols for St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

Upon contact with the driver, the deputy smelled a strong odor of intoxicants and the driver admitted to drinking multiple martinis.

After the investigation, the driver, a 42-year-old man from Traverse City, was placed under arrest for suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

He was lodged in the county jail.

A 19-year-old man from Dearborn Heights walked a way with no injuries after a rollover accident last Thursday in Elmwood Township.

About 12:30 p.m. Elmwood Fire and Rescue responded to a single-car rollover accident at M-72 and Bugai Road.

Deputies responded and found a 2007 Ford SUV off the southwest corner of the intersection rolled over.

The investigation showed that the vehicle was eastbound on M-72 approaching the intersection when the driver attempted to stop for a red light.

The driver lost control of the vehicle leading the roadway and rolled over.

The man was not injured. However, he was cited for violation of the basic speed law.
