What happened

Police said Szeliga was speeding on southbound I-75, east of Adams Road around 4:45 p.m.

While Troy police officers were trying to find the car, they were told the driver was doing donuts in the parking lot of a building at 755 W. Big Beaver Road. Officers caught up with the vehicle and stopped it on southbound Lakeview Drive, south of W. Big Beaver Road.

Police said Szeliga couldn’t give officers a license when they asked for one, and he refused to get out of the car. Police said he tried to close the door and laid down over the passenger seat when his hands folded.

Officers were finally able to get Szeliga into handcuffs and out of the vehicle.

Man threatens to kill officer

While Szeliga was being taken to jail, he repeatedly told the officer driving that he was going to sue him to make him lose his badge. He also threatened to kill the officer and his family.

A camera inside the patrol car captured the threats.

“I’m going to kill you, do you understand that? I’m gonna come to your house and I’m gonna kill you. I’m gonna find you and I’m gonna kill you,” Szeliga said.

Szeliga also insults the officer multiple time and calls the police who arrested him corrupt.

Officers said when Szeliga got to the lockup facility, he also threatened to burn down the police department.

Multiple charges issued

Szeliga is charged with reckless driving, no operator’s license on person, and two counts of hinder and obstruction of a police officer.

His bond was set at $10,000.

Records show Szeliga has previous felony convictions for assaults against police officers and malicious destruction of police property.
