Two young adults found themselves in custody after a peculiar incident in a bustling Saginaw Township intersection on Sunday evening.

At approximately 7:20 p.m. on January 7th, Saginaw Township Police were summoned to the crossroads of North Center Road and Weiss Street. A concerned citizen had dialed 911 upon noticing a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu stationary in the intersection, with its two occupants appearing to be asleep, reported Police Sergeant Chad Brooks.

Upon arrival, officers observed through the windows of the Malibu that the two men inside were indeed sleeping. Notably, the car was in a running state, positioned in drive, but was stationary due to the driver's foot on the brake pedal.

The police attempted to rouse the individuals by knocking on the window. This action woke the sleepy duo, who then attempted to drive off. However, quick intervention by an officer, who reached inside to turn off the ignition and retrieve the keys, prevented their departure.

Sergeant Brooks noted that as the men were being removed from the vehicle, a strong scent of marijuana emanated from the car.

In response to the situation, the Michigan State Police Impaired Driving Action Team (IMPACT) also arrived at the scene. The driver of the Malibu was subsequently arrested for operating a motor vehicle under the influence. The passenger, meanwhile, was detained due to an existing arrest warrant.
