OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. Metro Detroiters are eager to have some fun over the Fourth of July weekend, and the Oakland County sheriff wants to remind everyone to follow traditional safety rules as well as those surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19). Many people will enjoy the beautiful Fourth of July weather this weekend, but Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said remember to use your head and make sure the holiday doesnt go from a good time to a tragedy.
