Reports from the Mackinac Island Police Department from June 27 to July 5:

Police assisted emergency medical technicians from Allied EMS and the Mackinac Island Medical Center at 6:43 p.m. Tuesday, June 27, at Turkey Hill, after a 16-yearold Livonia girl was thrown from a spooked horse. The girl landed on her back and injured her hip. She was transported to the Medical Center for treatment.

A 53-year-old Mackinac Island man was escorted to Mackinac County Jail in St. Ignace for violation of probation after trespassing at apartments on Market Street at 3:15 a.m. Thursday, June 29. The man was found in the apartment complex laundry room by another resident, who called in the complaint. The violator was previously warned and given a written statement of warning to stay away from the building. A 20-year-old Traverse City

man was arrested for minor in possession and resisting and obstructing police at 11:06 p.m. Friday, June 30. Once in custody, the man sat down on the sidewalk on Astor Street and then got up and ran away. Police chased him down in Marquette Park, where he tried to hide under a tree. Officers had to restrain him. The man, who was later found to have five fugitive warrants against him, continued to struggle while being transported to the police department.

A 24-year-old Cheboygan woman reported to police that a 21-year-old Plainwell woman had been harassing her at a bar early Friday morning, June 30, and later on that morning in an employee dormitory. She reported the two began to argue in the bar and the woman threw a shoe at her head. The complainant wanted only the incident to be on police record and did not press charges. A 46-year-old Shepherd

man received a citation from Mackinac County's Marine Patrol for not having valid registration and decals for his boat after Mackinac Island Police were called to remove the boat from the dock at the State Park Visitors Center Monday, July 3. The boat was moved there by a charter business operating from the Chippewa Hotel Waterfront dock, who reported that the boat was blocking his business. The boat's registration had expired and the owner, who had bought it at auction, used the registration decals from his pontoon boat. The Coast Guard was called in and ordered the man to purchase necessary emergency equipment for the boat before leaving, which he did.

Fifty-five incidents were reported by police between Tuesday, June 27, and Monday, July 5. Of those, 17 were for bicycle larcenies, five were for minors in possession, and one was for a false alarm.
