It’s unfortunate a trained mental health professional or social care worker was not involved on the scene for a known mental health situation.

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a new Hazardous Weather Outlook AND Special Weather Statement for portions of southwest Lower Michigan, including Albion.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Heat indices of 95 to 100 are expected again this afternoon.
Pop-up thunderstorms are expected east of U.S.-31. These storms are not expected to become severe.

These storms are expected to produce cloud to ground lightning, small hail, wind gusts up to 40 mph, and very heavy downpours.

These storms will not move very fast. They could sit over an area for a brief period of time, and cause some ponding of water on roads and in low lying areas due to the heavy downpours.

If driving, make sure to slow down if you encounter one of these slow moving heavy downpours, to avoid hydroplaning. Also, avoid driving through areas that have standing water on the roads if drains get backed up.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Scattered thunderstorms on Friday could produce heavy rainfall and localized flooding. Isolated storms are also possible Saturday through Monday, mainly inland from Lake Michigan in the afternoons.

Although less humid weather will move in for the weekend, heat and humidity will return again by the middle of next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.

Albion Public Safety officers responded to complaints of dirt bikes and four wheelers riding in the area of Burr Oak St. today at about 3:10 PM. Upon arrival in the area officer saw a subject riding north bound on a dirt bike on Burr Oak St. in the 900 block. Officers activated their lights and siren at which point the subject accelerated quickly away from them. The subject continued north on Burr Oak St. failing to stop at the stop signs at both North St. and Broadwell St. After crossing Broadwell St. the subject lost control after leaving the paved road and fell off the motorcycle, but quickly picked it up and rode through the woods. The subject then rode over to Valhalla Dr. and then down to Fitch St. where officers continued the pursuit. The subject went east on Broadwell St. and then south on Clark St. to Michigan Ave. The officers then pursued him east on Michigan Ave. into Jackson County to Villa Nova Dr. where the subject turned and then made a u-turn heading back out onto Michigan Ave. The subject again headed east on Michigan Ave to a dirt driveway just before Dobbins Dr. After turning into the driveway the subject again lost control of the motorcycle and fell off. The subject then picked up the motorcycle and attempted to ride it but was unintentionally bumped by the front of a patrol car turning around in the grass knocking it over. Officer quickly exited their cars and placed the subject under arrest. Officers then identified the subject, as 17 year old Parma Township resident who had several scraps from falling off the motorcycle multiple times. Officers asked the subject if he wanted medical attention, but he refused any medical treatment. ADPS officers requested a Michigan State Trooper, who had responded to assist, transport the subject to Oaklawn Hospital for evaluation. The Michigan State Police were also asked to investigate the minor collision between the motorcycle and the patrol car. Warrants will be requested from the Calhoun County Prosecutor for fleeing and eluding, operating an off road vehicle on a roadway, failing to stop at multiple stop signs, operating a vehicle on the roadway without a license, and not wearing a helmet while operating an off road vehicle. ...

Jeremy Kulikowski we seen them last night on chestnut

Oh shit!!! Leave them alone they arent hurting nothing!!!

Now id put together a big ride all the way through town with about 2_300 disrespectful ass kids hahahahahahaha happy independence day

Victoria Gross lol

Thankfully whomever it was wasnt seriously injured. But what's bad is running from the officers. When adps is usually fair. Most likely would have just been told to stop it and sent on there way. I will say this with especially the motorcycles and dirt bikes I've seen in town flying down Clark doing 60 plus mph every single day. THERE IS CHILDREN AND ANIMALS that you could hit in a blink of a eye. That shit is not cool. Obey the dang speed limit no matter what you are on!

Just go to Crowell school. Bring the popcorn.

I don’t condone running from police officers at all. They should have stopped and complied. What I don’t agree with is an officer using his Patrol car to bump a 17 year old off a dirt bike...it wasn’t like the kid was braking into some ones house or destroying property.

I've lived here in Albion for about 3 years now and people riding around like that is completely normal around here! If they wasn't doing anything wrong why even call??? Are you going to be calling for the next 100 people that joy ride around town? Let the kids have some fun as long as they ain't doing anything stupid, and don't run from the cops man? You know they will tell you to go put it up and avoid getting caught next time....

Watched 3 police chase him down Michigan ave at top speed. I could see that it was a kid when he rode past! Since when is ok to have a high speed chase with a kid on a dirt bike? I understand he was in violation of the law, but seriously. I said there was going to be an "accident" and I was right.

Take his wheels off like the rims.

Tri him as an adult

MitchellMullins 🧐🧐🧐

Set my people free!!! Leave him be!! Damn BULLIES!!!

Back in the early 90's the APD hit a person on a 3 wheeler that was running. Chestnut and Berrien

Seen plenty of non street legal bikes riding around then wen I go buy one the city hates me🤦🏽‍♂️😂

bullies!! them boys aint bothering nobody! they been n the house hiding from covid so let em have fun geesh come do something about people leaving bags of poop on my porch 🤨 no thats a crime lol

Mariah Norman

Unintentionally bumped by police car...🤣🤣...what a load of shit...put that car under suspension with pay till further investigation...

That’s funny. I haven’t seen anyone here say, “If they would just obey the law there would be no problem.”

Good job officers, what a bunch of punks,needed a few more ass whoopings.

THIS IS HYSTERICAL !!!

It's like Sgt Carter reading off offenses to Homer !! My GAWD ! THE COPS BORED ? For gawd sake the boys need to escape the madness of our world for a minute . if that's all they were doing BE THANKFUL ! Some of those infractions wouldn't have even happened if the Cops didn't pursue the issue .

Gomer not Homer

Colleen D Wysocki there's always a retard blaming the cops never allowing people to take responsibility for their own actions

Don't run from popo deal with the judge what I've learned

Does this mean that the city miscalculated our summer tax rates, but we need to catch the error ourselves and appeal it?

Such a beautiful campus.

Went into the tunnels under the quad....heating system???
