Weapons Charges, 100 Block of Pleasant Ridge, 12:46 a.m., Dec. 1
A 40-year-old Saline woman faces two misdemeanor weapon charges - brandishing a firearm in public and possession of a firearm, after an incident Dec. 1. The woman and her boyfriend were in Ann Arbor and waiting for an Uber when they met an Ann Abor man. They invited the man to share the Uber. The Uber driver didn’t drop off the man and instead took the man back to Saline, where the woman resides. When the vehicle dropped them off in Saline, the Ann Arbor man got out of the vehicle and seemed to think he was heading into the home with the couple.
