It was during Lapeer Days last year that the front man for the band The Calling, Alex Band, told police in Lapeer that he had been kidnapped and beaten. Last Friday the police arrested Christopher D. Gruno and arraigned him for armed robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon, and two counts of felony firearm.
It's not that you can't bring your dogs to 'Lapeer Days', a city ordinance allows it as long as the dogs are on a leash, but people are a little nervous around dogs these days after the recent fatal attack in our community. 'Lapeer Days' organizers would prefer that you didn't bring them downtown on such a busy day.
