Cedar man arrested after family fightA 19 year-old Centerville Township man was arrested by Leelanau County Sheriff's deputies Thursday evening after being involved in fight with his parents. Law enforcement was summoned at 11:46pm for the report of an intoxicated man who had broken things in his bedroom, gotten into an argument with his mother and father and unplugged the phone when the father said he was going to call the police.
The suspect later obtained a kitchen knife and put it to his throat. His parents pleas to put the knife down were unsuccessful and the man waved the knife at his parents. The father was able to wrestle the knife away and both parents wrestled the suspect to the ground and held him there until police arrived.
No one was injured in the fray. The suspect was arrested and charged with Felonious Assault, Domestic Violence and Willfully Disconnecting a 911 Call. He remains in the Leelanau County jail pending a bond being set.
