Police reports related to the arrest of Lions president Tom Lewand were obtained today by Action News. In the report, Roscommon County deputy Josh Burmeister details what took place shortly before midnight, Friday June 25, in Denton Township, MI.
According to the report, Lewand’s black SUV exited the parking lot of the Limberlost bar and was observed weaving on Route 55 near Houghton Lake High School.
When stopped by officers, Lewand told them he had not drank in a year and a half. He went on to say he was the designated driver and he had pulled into the Limberlost to pick a friend up and was headed to the “KOLO” dinner.
At that point, Lewand was asked to step out of the vehicle to perform sobriety testing.
Lewand was asked several times if he would submit to a breathalyzer test and he refused.
After failing a number of roadside sobriety tests, Lewand was placed under arrest and transported to jail.
Once in jail, Lewand agreed to submit to the breathalyzer testing. At 1:04am, the first test was administered and Lewand’s blood alcohol content was .21%. Three minutes later, a second test was administed and Lewand’s blood alcohol content was .20%.
