While patrolling the area of Beck and Central Park Boulevard on Oct. 8, Canton Township Police stopped a 2001 Green Ford traveling southbound on Beck Road with a defective headlight, according to a police report.
While speaking with the driver, police observed the man’s eyes to be constricted and the man’s hands were shaking uncontrollably, the report said. The man refused to consent to a vehicle search, so police requested a K-9 search.
