Driver in Boxer Shorts Crashes into Lake Orion Home, Leaves Gun in Car, Flees

(Oakland County Sheriff’s Dept, Sept. 20, 2018)

Lake Orion, MI – Deputies and the Orion Township Fire Department responded to the 600 block of Joslyn Rd. for a vehicle that crashed into a house.   Upon arrival, Deputies observed a Jeep Cherokee completely inside of the kitchen.  There was extensive damage to the vehicle and to the home but no driver found on scene.  Deputies confirmed the occupants of the home were uninjured and were out of the house. Due to the extensive damage to the vehicle and house, the suspects had to escape through the sun roof of the vehicle.

OUTCOME OF INCIDENT:  An OCSO K-9 Deputy responded to the scene and conducted a track for the driver.  The K-9 tracked from the crash scene approximately one-half mile east to an area that was near the registered owner’s home.  The suspect was located hiding in a bush; he was wearing only boxer shorts.  The suspect was obviously highly intoxicated and refused a PBT.  An inventory search of the vehicle revealed a loaded .45 semi-automatic hand gun.  LEIN revealed the suspect’s driver’s license was suspended multiple times, a prior OWI arrest and did not have a concealed weapons permit.  The suspect was transported by paramedics to McLaren Hospital where Deputies obtained a search warrant for his blood. The suspect will not be arraigned until the blood results come back from the Lab.

SUSPECT INFORMATION:  36 year old male, resident of The Charter Township of Orion.
