LIVONIA – The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says they arrested a Hemlock man for allegedly threatening to stab his family over missing beer.
According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, Bradlee Redman, 24, is charged with felony Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree, misdemeanor Criminal Mischief in the Fourth Degree, three counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Harassment in the Second Degree, which is a violation.
Dougherty said that on May 29, the Sheriff’s Office was called to a residence in the Town of Livonia for a report of a man acting aggressively toward family members in the household ‘because he couldn’t find his beer.’
Investigating deputies allege that Redman threatened family members, saying he would ‘stab them in the neck.’ When a family member attempted to call 911, Redman allegedly ripped the modem from the wall, which deputies believe was to prevent a call for police assistance. Redman allegedly slammed the door so hard while leaving the residence that it was rendered inoperable.
Deputies located Redman and took him into custody.
Several members of the Road Patrol Division, Criminal Investigations Division and Forensic Identification Unit handled the investigation and arrest.
Redman was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and held on pre-arraignment detention.
Livonia Town Justice Robert Lemen arraigned Redman and ordered him held at the Livingston County Jail on $1,000 cash or $2,000 secured bond.
