Drunk Michigan man found covered in blood, screaming, waving deer meat in parking lot

MASON COUNTY, Mich. – A man was arrested Monday afternoon after police found him acting "extremely bizarre" in a parking lot in Northern Michigan.

WPBN reports police were called to an BP Gas Station in Scottville (just East of Ludington), Michigan, for a man walking around the parking lot covered in blood and sitting in a car that did not belong to him.

Police arrived and found the man in the car. When they approached, the 62-year-old man rushed at them, screaming and began trying to attack the deputies.

The man, identified as Roy Purple, was arrested for the attempted attack. Witnesses described Purple as extremely intoxicated. The blood was from a deer that was hit by a car.

WPBN reports that man was covered in blood and waving around deer meat.

“Until the one individual chose to run at the deputies he landed himself in trouble,” the sheriff said. “Sometimes all you can do is just shake your head and walk away, you can’t make this stuff up.”

Police said alcohol was a major factor in the incident.
