03/17/2017 - A man staying with relatives in Bloomfield Township during the recent power outage got into an argument over the use of generator power, and threatened to stab them with a knife, leaving him in jail when he couldn't post bond.

On Monday, March 13, Bloomfield Township police were dispatched to the 6000 block of Indianwood Trail on a call of a man threatening the homeowners with a knife. Officers at the scene determined that a relative who had been staying at the home with the homeowners during the recent power outage got into an argument over the use of the generator power, and the argument escalated. The relative threatened to stab them and the police with the knife.

The relative, David Drouillard, 58, of Florida, was arrested and charged with domestic assault.

He was arraigned at 48th District Court in front of Judge Diane D'Agostini, and his bond was set at $50,000, cash or surety.

He was unable to post bond and is lodged at the Oakland County Jail pending his pre-trail date, which is set for Wednesday, April 5, at 9 a.m. before Judge Marc Barron.
