Fugitive Captured During ‘Jaywalking Patrol’ On 8 Mile

ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – A wanted fugitive is now off the streets, after he was arrested during a jaywalking patrol in Royal Oak.

Michigan State Police say the arrest happened around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday as troopers were patrolling 8 Mile Road to reduce the number of pedestrian and vehicle crashes due to pedestrians failing to use marked cross walks.

Troopers approached a pedestrian who was observed jaywalking northbound from the center median to the north side of 8 Mile Road, according to police, and realized the 49-year-old Royal Oak Township man had one misdemeanor and one felony assault warrant out of the 36th District Court.

The man, whose name was not released, was issued a verbal warning for jaywalking and turned over to Detroit Police without incident.

    THIS JAYWALKING PATROL IS COPIED DIRECTLY FROM RUDY GIULIANI’S WINNING “BROKEN WINDOW” STRATEGY THAT CLEANED UP NYC. THOUSANDS OF CRIMINALS AND PERPS WITH OPEN WARRANTS CAN BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE AND EITHER PROSECUTED AND JAILED OR FLIPPED TO GRAB MORE IMPORTANT, MORE DANGEROUS CRIMINALS……PERHAPS THEY WILL CATCH RODHAM
