A slumped-over driver found his way to the Saginaw County Jail following a brief investigation last week.
Frankenmuth Police Chief Don Mawer said the incident took place around 8pm Friday, January 8, in a parking lot in the 700 block of South Main Street.
FPD officers were sent to that location for a male driver who was in his car, slumped over the wheel and sleeping.
Officers needed some time to wake the driver, a 21-year-old Imlay City man, from his slumber. The vehicle was running. Further investigation determined the driver was under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested and lodge in the Saginaw County Jail on the charge of operating while impaired.
The FPD were also on duty at the Frankenmuth varsity football game last Saturday afternoon. The Eagles welcomed Marine City to town for the MHSAA Division 5 Regional Championship game. Mawer believes everything went very well, including the final score: 31-7 ‘Muth.
The Mariners quarterback, Jeffery Heaslip, is the son of the Marine City Police Chief Jim Heaslip, who is also an assistant coach with the team.
