A deputy responded to a disturbance complaint at an Oxford business near West Oakwood Road and Mullins Court on Friday, Nov.1 at 2:13 p.m. Upon arrival, a 51-year-old Macomb man – a former employee of the business – became confrontational and was arrested and charged with resisting and obstructing an officer, disorderly conduct and trespassing. Forced to be tased during the struggle, a search of the man’s pickup truck revealed a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun. Initially taken to the Oxford Township Substation, the man was transported to Oakland County Jail in Pontiac.
