    Armed Good Samaritan Comes to Aid of Man Being Beaten

    Daily Police Beat - Latest from the Ann Arbor News - MLive.com

    Pittsfield Township police arrested three people accused of attacking a man in traffic after he earlier tried to intervene in a dispute.

    The victim was outside Falsetta's Market at 2200 Pittsfield Blvd. at about 4 p.m. Wednesday when he saw a man loudly arguing with a woman and trying to push her into a van, said Detective Lt. Steve Heller.

    The victim said he asked if everything was OK and told the woman she didn't have to get into the vehicle. He said the man told him to mind his own business, and they left in the van.

    The victim went into a nearby store and called police before he left.

    While stopped at a red light at Carpenter and Packard roads a few minutes later, the victim said the driver of the van confronted him and began yelling. He said he exited his vehicle and was punched in the face and knocked to the ground, Heller said.

    Two women, including the woman he tried to help, got out of the van and began hitting and stomping the victim while he was on the ground, Heller said.

    A passing motorist stopped his car, pulled a gun and demanded the trio stop beating the man, Heller said.

    Police responded to several calls reporting a man holding people at gunpoint. Officers determined the man with a gun had a legitimate concealed weapons permit and was trying to help, Heller said.

    Officers arrested an 18-year-old Ann Arbor man and two 19-year-old women. They were released pending charges.

    The victim was not seriously injured.
    Wow, try to help someone and get your butt kicked for it. Thankfully the Good Samaritan happened by and was willing to help.

    +2. Stay in the car - you're much safer there than getting out. Not only is the BG near, but you could get run down by someone not paying attention.

    my gf and her mom were driving by a mall, when someone pulled out of the mall parking lot cutting them off, gf's mom honked trying to get their attention. At the next light, the lady gets out of the car and starts yelling, then the husband gets out of the passenger seat and starts yelling, rips off his coat and throws it on the hood of his car, gets in front of gf's car yelling "come get out of the car, whats up now?!" grabbing himself and just being an pain. Luckily they didnt get out and called 911, a conservation officer was nearby and pulled the guy over trying to get the story. the people started saying that they only got out of the car because gf's mom supposedly flipped them off..

    In the end nothing happened, but just more story about crazy's being anywhere at anytime
