The officer took the phone to make him focus on the questions he was asked but was told, “No, no, if you take my phone, I’m about to kill you,” and then lunged at the officer. He grabbed the upper right arm and tried to take the officer to the ground. Another officer arrived and they were able to handcuff Ferris at which time he made comments like, “You got me in handcuffs, I want a better future for myself. Please help me” and “Dude I’m in cuffs, I love you. If I could hug you right now, I will hug you.”
He was identified through his Michigan driver’s license and found to be 18. An odor of alcoholic beverages was found on his breath.
