(WWJ) While Michiganders have been instructed not to dial 911 about people violating the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order — people in at least one Oakland County community haven't been shy about been calling the police.
In the Troy Police Department's crime report, officers detailed more than half-a-dozen instances in which police investigated people who were out and about suspiciously, or were otherwise believed to disobeying the governor's order, in effect statewide through April 30.
In some cases, police ordered people to disperse.
Most recently, at around 12:30 a.m. Monday, an officer on patrol spotted a vehicle leaving the parking lot of Athens High School. After apparently noticing the officer, the driver changed lanes rapidly and then stopped without prompting from the officer, police said. The officer spoke with the occupants, two local teens. The passenger explained they went to Athens High School to “dance in the rain under the parking lot lights.” The teens were advised on the “stay home” order and sent home.
In an unusual incident back on April 5, at around 6:45 p.m., police said an unknown man was reportedly driving around a neighborhood, on Mesa Drive in Troy, yelling that he has COVID-19, reportedly in an attempt to scare neighborhood kids. The caller said the man had done this multiple times, but police were unable to find him.
