A west Saline business owner may face charges after allegedly assaulting a courier who served him with personal protection order paperwork.
On Aug. 7 a 56-year-old who works for Perfect Courier Service MI arrived at the West Michigan Avenue business to serve papers to a 41-year-old man who is currently divorcing his wife. The courier identified the man and served him the PPO papers from the man’s wife.
The man allegedly grabbed the paperwork from a table and then slapped the courier across the face with it before running to the back of the building. He told his staff to call police about the courier trespassing on his property.
The business owner later told police that he was upset and that he did not slap the courier. He said he threw the PPO papers and that they struck the courier in the chest. He asked for the courier’s phone number so that he could apologize to him.
The Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office authorized a misdemeanor assault and battery charge agains the man.
