      The Leelanau Sheriff's Office reports the six warrants that the driver is facing, bench warrant out of Wayne County for forced entry in to a residence, assault with a dangerous weapon out of Wayne County, civil for failure to appear out of Monroe County, shoplifting out of Southgate Police Department, failure to appear on a traffic offense out of Clare County, as well as bench warrant for failure to pay fines out of Lincoln park.

      The driver was taken to Munson Medical Center for a blood test and then to the Leelanau County Jail.
