I don't understand how a sand bag is a dangerous and illegal weapon. Sand-filled gloves? These charges are a joke. Freeze Plus P (I looked it up) is essentially no different from pepper spray. I'm pretty sure he was arrested by the joker, as these charges are not so serious.

This is absolutely absurd.  I can remember being stopped a couple of times while driving up North to go hunting and having a conversation with an officer about the benefits/drawbacks of the model of handgun I was carrying on my hip.  Now, while my licsense made it a legal item to carry, I can't imagine how any of these are felony items. and i could share a cell then, cuz i would have about 20 years and 10,000 dollars worth of felonies in the back of my truck too!

Not much else going on in Petoskey.  Have they started doing anything about that giant pit in downtown where they were planning on putting condos?

As a 2004 alumnus of Petoskey High School, I'm not sure whther to be ashamed, proud, frightened, or bemused. At the moment it's some of all of those.
