Grosse Pointe Farms: The rather bucolic community of Grosse Pointe Farms was shaken to its core early Saturday morning when miscreants from “elsewhere” invaded their beautiful little city with guns a’blazing.
I was on my boat, the white one over there, wait, no, that one over there. Sorry, they all look the same after awhile, anyway, I was on the boat checking out my porfolio when this car came screaming through the parking lot, it was like Dukes of Hazard, except the car was white and not orange…and it didn’t actually jump anything, it just drove into the water, kerplunk…but you know what I mean. Oh look, Facebook is up 1.8% …Grosse Pointe Farms Resident
A white Dodge Charger, chased by other vehicles, entered the city in the early am, just when residents are out strolling the lakeside enjoying its peaceful tranquility….except for Saturday morning.
A chase through city streets, described by some as starting in the area of Hoover & 7 Mile in Detroit, ended up at Pier Park. The white Dodge Charger, in an attempt to escape a fusillade of bullets being fired by the chase vehicles, drove into St Clair Lake near the parks boathouse. The driver then quickly, with arms waving, exited the vehicle and swam towards calmer surroundings, known around here as Canada.
You rarely have to drive into large bodies of water to escape bullets in Canada, izz nice there.
Grosse Pointe Farms Police said the swimmer eventually made it back to shore where he met with EMS. He’s described as having non life threatening injuries.
The folks who were chasing him were found and arrested by the police, most of them anyway, police seem to think there may be more outstanding.
Evidence was discovered in the vehicles, most notably the weapons and bullets used to chase the white Charger’s driver into the lake. The investigation continues…
