Man refuses to leave police station

Sandusky Register Staff • Feb 22, 2014 at 7:10 PM

A man was arrested for loitering in the Sandusky police station for three hours Thursday morning.

Michael Bryant, 56, 600 block Cleveland Road W., Huron, was charged with criminal trespassing and persistent disorderly conduct.

Bryant was inside the police station from about 3-6 a.m. Thursday, during which time officers asked him repeatedly if he needed assistance.

When the day shift began arriving around 6 a.m., they again asked Bryant if he needed help. Bryant only responded by grunting and walking toward officers.

At one point, he balled up his hands into fists, according to a police report. He was charged with trespassing, then taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center for an evaluation.

After he was released a short while later, Bryant returned to the police station, where he again began grunting and tried to re-enter the lobby, the report said. Officers told him numerous times he had to leave unless conducting official business, so he was then cited for disorderly conduct.

He remains in the Erie County jail without bond.
