This week, a man killed himself after getting into a fight with cops in a Brighton parking lot. At about 2:30 p.m., officers from the Brighton Police Department were looking into a U-Haul truck and trailer. Police say that on Saturday, May 20, in the parking lot of Meijer at 8650 W. Grand River Ave., they found out that the owner of the travel trailer had several warrants. At least one of the warrants was for a major crime with a weapon.
Officers also found out that the man was suspected of stealing the U-Haul truck that was parked next to the trailer. Police finally got in touch with a woman who was in the trailer. She told them that the man had left with the truck two hours earlier. But, the truck was parked right next to the trailer. The officers then tried to get in touch with the man, who they thought was inside.
Due to the nature of the man’s warrants, police asked for help from nearby departments, including the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, the Green Oak Township Police Department, the Hamburg Township Police Department, and the Metro Parks Police Department. After setting up a perimeter, the woman left the trailer, and the cops were able to talk to the man. Police said that after about half an hour of talking, the man’s phone went dead.
The Brighton cops then called the SWAT and Negotiator teams from Livingston Regional. The police could not talk to each other again. Around 7:30 p.m., SWAT broke one of the trailer’s windows and used a pole camera to see that the man was lying on the trailer’s bed and not moving. The man was found to have killed himself. No one else was hurt, and the cops did not fire any shots. As of the morning of May 24, no other information was known.
