Assault and Battery reports results in arrest for DWLSLeelanau County Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of an assault which occurred on S Lee Point Road in Bingham Township Wednesday morning. The caller told dispatchers that he had been assaulted and the suspect had driven off in a motor home.
An officer in the southeast portion of the county located the motor home on S West Bay Shore Drive in Elmwood Township and confirmed with the driver that he had just come from Lee Point Road. He denied being involved in a fight.
A records check of the motor home driver showed that he did not have a valid license and he was arrested and the vehicle towed from the scene. The original caller was interviewed and told deputies that there was never an assault and that it was only a verbal argument.
The 55 year-old Traverse City man that was arrested for Driving While License Suspended was released to Grand Traverse County authorities on their charges after posting interim bond at the Leelanau County jail. He will be scheduled to appear on the driving charge at a later date in District Court. No assault charges will be sought.
