WESTLAND, MI - Westland Police responded to a vehicle doing donuts in the middle of an intersection. Upon their arrival a vehicle was in reverse going around in circles as a small fire can be seen starting under the hood.
Officers noticed a person was inside and noted that he was conscious and smiling at officers.
Eventually the vehicle comes to a stop and officers try to get the man out of the vehicle. The man can be heard yelling, “I’m not getting out. I’m going to the hospital.”
As officers struggle with the man to get him out of the vehicle, the fire in the engine grows bigger and bigger.
The man continues to hold onto the steering wheel refusing to exit the car. At one point, the man produces a razor blade and threatens the officers with it. Eventually the officers are able to wrestle the man out of the vehicle and get him into custody.
“After the driver was restrained officers spoke with him and determined that there was sufficient evidence to place him under arrest for operating a vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance, and for driving on a suspended license,” police said.
The man was taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries before heading off to jail.
Thank you officers. You are all heroes.
