Mask Confrontation Leads To Stabbing In Delta Township
I was out running errands early this morning, and around 7am I was at the stoplight at West Saginaw and Canal, when out of nowhere Three Eaton county Sheriff’s cars came flying through with lights and sirens blaring. I was headed home when I got there my wife was listening to the police scanner. She said someone had been stabbed at a Quality Dairy, she was trying to figure out where.
According to State Police there was an argument between two men in the Dimondale Quality Dairy over wearing a mask inside the store. According to WILX:
The argument continued in the parking lot where investigators say the 43-year-old, who was not wearing a mask, stabbed a 77-year-old man he was arguing with and drove away to a nearby neighborhood.
The 77-year-old man wearing a mask was treated for his injuries.
The younger man who drove away and was stopped later by an Eaton County Sheriff’s deputy. The 43-year-old pulled a knife on the Deputy, who then shot him. He later died of his injuries. Around noon today Michigan State Police say Sean Ruis, 43, of Grand Ledge who worked for MDOT died this morning after being shot by a veteran Eaton County Sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop concerning an earlier stabbing. All this was over a conversation about wearing a face mask. The latest order from the Governor requires a face mask when inside public places, as well as outside around crowds. A person can be fined up to $500 for not following the order.
