A 62-year-old Scottville man “covered in blood” following a car/deer crash allegedly rushed at Mason County sheriff’s deputies and then fought with them Monday, Nov. 13, shortly before 3 p.m. according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.
According to the Mason County Press, the man was arrested for resisting and opposing police in the 400 block of East US 10 following a bizarre series of events.
The man was arrested following a 911 report from the Scottville EZ Mart reporting a man behind the business “covered in blood,” Cole said. “Deputies arrived and learned from witnesses this subject had wandered around the business and entered a car and sat in the back seat. He then left and reportedly went to a trailer next door.
“Deputies found blood in the yard, steps and front door of the trailer. Deputies knocked and made contact with the 62-year-old man who reportedly rushed at the deputies screaming at them. He then fought with deputies in the yard.
“Deputies eventually made contact with a total of four persons, all of whom were intoxicated, and learned the blood had come from a deer that had been struck and killed by a car in front of their home. Apparently the four had cut meat off the carcass and were cooking venison.
“You’re correct, you can’t make this stuff up,” said Cole.
