On July 10, a woman who lived in Texas called the police department to report her “baby daddy” was selling marijuana out of his Saline home. The woman further said the man posted it for sale on Facebook. At first, the woman was unable to give police with the local address, but called back after a short while, and provided the location. Dispatch pulled up the Facebook page for the 22-year-old Saline resident, confirming the man was selling Fruity Pebbles and rice crispy treat edibles for six dollars. According to the police report, nothing on the social media post indicated the treats were laced with marijuana or any other contraband. On July 10 at 2:15 pm, an officer went to the man’s apartment on Clark Street and made contact with the individual, advising him if he turned over the contraband to be destroyed, charges for possession or sale would not be pursued. The man said he only had three rice crispy treats left, as he sold or gave away the rest. The man handed over the remaining treats to the officer. The officer further advised the individual if any future information was obtained about him possessing or selling contraband, the police may return with a search warrant, in which he would be charged to the full extent of the law. The three rice crispy treats were logged into evidence at the station to be destroyed. With a warning issued, the case was closed.
On July 10 at 3:10 pm, a complainant came to the police station to report an assault at her place of work at JAC Products on South Industrial Drive. The complainant, a 29-year-old Ypsilanti resident, stated on July 5 while punching out at work, she was confronted by a co-worker, a 23-year-old Ypsilanti woman, who began asking the complainant if she had been spreading rumors about her and a male co-worker making a sex video. After the complainant denied spreading the rumor, her co-worker continued to badger her about the matter. The next day at about 9:30 pm, the complainant further said she was walking between two presses at JAC Products, when the same woman co-worker came up and pushed her, in which the two individuals then got into a “brawl,” punching each other repeatedly. A JAC Products team leader broke up the fight and sent both women back to work. Shortly afterwards, a supervisor told the complainant to go home, and she was escorted off the premises. According to her statement, when the complainant returned to her Ypsilanti residence and exited her car, the woman co-worker “jumped” her. This second altercation was reported to the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department. The complainant stated she did not want to press charges at this time, but wanted the incident at JAC Products documented as directed by the sheriff’s department. Because prosecution is not desired, the department will not make any further investigation into the local matter. The case was closed.
