Former Michigan state House speaker faces gun charge (Party of family values strikes again)
Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 01:41 PM by LuckyTheDog
Less than two weeks after he was sentenced to six months probation on an impaired driving charge, former (Republican) state House Speaker Craig DeRoche was arrested early Sunday morning at his Novi home after a family member told police he was intoxicated and carrying a gun.

(Snip)

DeRoche's wife told police that she was out of town and concerned for her three children because her husband was caring for them, but sounded incoherent on the phone. So she called a friend and asked him to get DeRoche out of the house and then her mother to look after the children.

The friend told police that DeRoche came over to his house, but got upset and left. A short time later, the mother-in-law told police that DeRoche broke into his home, retrieved a loaded .40-caliber handgun from a safe and walked into one of his children's bedrooms.
