A officer resigned this week after being charged with felonious assault and with brandishing a firearm in connection with a minor car accident earlier this month in Shelby Township.
Russell Glass was in 41-A District Court in Shelby Township on Monday in connection with the April 13 incident. He was released on a $10,000 personal bond. Glass was not on duty when the incident occured, according to Rochester City Manager Jaymes Vettraino.
Shelby Township Lt. Det. Stan Muszynski told Patch a 16-year-old girl and Glass may have been involved in a minor traffic crash just before 6 p.m. on Van Dyke Avenue as the girl turned right onto 24 Mile Road.
Glass told investigators the girl cut him off and the two got into a minor crash. The teen told police she never felt anything and continued driving.
Muszynski said Glass allegedly followed the girl to her home on 24 Mile and Schoenherr roads and was met by the girl’s father. Police said an altercation between the girl’s father and Glass ensued, and allegedly Glass pulled out a gun.
According to Vettraino, the gun was not issued by the police department.
