Malik McDowell arrest

Former Michigan State football star Malik McDowell was caught on video earlier this year screaming "I need a supervisor" more than 50 times while drunkenly resisting arrest and fighting with a police officer inside an Oakland County gas station, according to authorities.


Mackenzie Street shooting

A suspected gunman is in custody after allegedly shooting an 8-year-old boy, his 29-year-old mother and a 39-year-old man.

The violence didn't end there. A 3-year-old girl was assaulted at the home on Mackenzie Street in Detroit. The children involved in the incident are at a children's hospital.

A New Jersey family is suing Wayne County, claiming officials improperly took their home and asking for their money back.

There are two kinds of foreclosure: mortgage and property tax. If someone stops paying the mortgage, the bank takes their home. If someone stops paying property taxes, the county takes the home.

“I’m hurt. I’m hurt. I haven’t ate nothing. I haven’t ate nothing ever since it happened. I couldn’t sleep for three days,” Dion’s grandmother said.
