Sheriff: Couple arrested, charged in Orion Township parking lot altercation caught on video
2 charged with felonious assault
Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard held a news conference Thursday afternoon to address the case. He shared the videos and six different 911 calls. Bouchard said two people — the driver and passenger of the minivan shown in the videos — were arrested and are facing felonious assault charges, a four-year felony. They remained in custody Thursday and were expected to be arraigned in the afternoon.
They were both armed with handguns and both of them had concealed pistol licenses (CPL), the Sheriff said.
Bouchard explained the mother and her two daughters are the ones shown on the videos outside of the vehicle. They were not armed. The woman and man inside the vehicle are married, the Sheriff said.
“There was a bump as they entered and exited (the restaurant),” Bouchard said.
The Sheriff said that prompted the altercation, with the woman denying there was any bump or any contact. Bouchard said responding deputies got very different stories about what happened from the two parties.
