Car Accident Turns Into an Arrest

One driver truly had a bad day Tuesday, when a car accident turned into an arrest.

Around 9:30 am Tuesday morning an accident was reported on the Bagley Street Bridge where the driver of an SUV claimed that he was experiencing mechanical issues.

The driver then lost control of his brakes and steering wheel hitting a sign and steering off of Bagley Street into the swamp area.

After speaking with Michigan State Police, Alpena Township Fire Department and the City Fire Department the driver was taken by surprise when he was arrested at the scene for a previous outstanding warrant.

According to MSP his arrest had nothing to do with Tuesday’s accident. No injuries were reported in the accident.

The driver’s name has not been released at this time.
