11 call from Spice Girls' driver leads to arrest in carjacking
(2008-02-18)
(wgvu) - BURTON, Mich. (AP) - A 911 call from the driver of a Spice
Girls' tour bus about a possible drunken driver led to the arrest
of a suspected carjacker.
The Flint Journal reports the bus was heading south on
Interstate 75 on Saturday night when its driver noticed a man
weaving in and out of traffic. Police in suburban Detroit later
arrested a 36-year-old Burton man.
He was turned over to police in Burton, about 50 miles northwest
of Detroit, in connection with a carjacking at a gas station.
Authorities say he also had been stopped earlier in the day on
suspicion of shoplifting.
The man was being held in the Genesee County Jail pending
arraignment.
The Spice Girls were in the Detroit area to perform Saturday at
The Palace of Auburn Hills.
