POLICE BLOTTER: Driver cited after running stop sign, causing accident Monday

BIG RAPIDS — Big Rapids Department of Public Safety officers responded to the following calls Monday. All calls might not be reported.


• A personal injury accident occurred on Michigan Avenue near Elm Street. One vehicle ran a stop sign. The at-fault driver was cited.

• Police handled a civil complaint involving a 22-year-old man who wanted an officer to talk to his 22-year-old ex-girlfriend and her 25-year-old boyfriend, and tell them to “leave him alone and be nice” after he said he bumped into them at a bar on Saturday night around midnight. Officers found the complainant wasn’t an ex-boyfriend, but actually had stalking charges pressed against him three years ago by the woman.
