Meadow Brook Concert & Cuisine

More than 350 ($85 - $125 tickets) convened at Oakland University for the annual summer fundraiser for MBT - “Michigan’s answer to Broadway.” Before the food stations opened, folks lollygagged outside sipping beer and wine from the Rochester Tap Room and bid $9,000 for the silent auction items Colleen Brnabic and Maryann Foxlee had set up in the hallway. Generous local restaurants (see photo gallery) served savory fare for dining on the stroll before the theatre doors opened. Artistic director Travis Walter conducted a live auction with his trademark good humor. He got $500 from two bidders for two Dickens packages that included a walk-on role in MBT’s “A Christmas Carol”  and $900 for a Fender Squire Guitar signed by The Grass Roots Band.

Woman arrested in assault of local resident


02/17/2017 - A 25-year-old Warren woman was arrested on Thursday, February 2, in connection with an assault and battery incident involving a 55-year-old Rochester Hills man in the 1200 block of Candlestick Lane.

Sheriff's deputies responded about 6:23 a.m. to the area, after a neighbor called 911 to report that a woman in the area was heard screaming for help. Deputies responding to the scene were let into a home by a woman who witnesses in the area told deputies they saw hitting the man who lives at the home.

Deputies said the victim said he had been in a relationship with the woman, but was trying to distance himself from her. The man told deputies he ran into the woman at a club the previous night, but went home about 9 p.m. He said the woman came to his home unannounced about 6 a.m. and began hitting him and pulling his hair.

The victim told deputies he walked away from the woman and she followed him to his bedroom where she continued to assault him until authorities arrived.

The woman was arrested in connection with assault and booked into the Oakland County Jail.
