Detroit business helps blight fighters clean...

Jonathan Pommerville and his Fochnut Blight Fighers go around cleaning up the city of Detroit. They've cleaned up bricks dumped at a vacant lot on Wormer and McNichols twice. The bricks fell off The Bohemian, a medical marijuana dispensary, but employees there say they have no idea how the debris moved across the street.

"Of course they’re going to deny, deny, deny but there’s no denying those bricks came from this place,” says Pommerville.

“I don’t understand why we’re part of the problem initially, it was just a big misunderstanding,” says Jay Hypen of The Bohemian.

But, regardless of how the bricks got there both men agree, it needs to go. So what started as a confrontation turned into cooperation with the two men working together to clean up the mess.

“I don’t mind pitching in. I support this man’s cause. I grew up not too far from him,” says Hypen. 

On behalf of The Bohemian, Hypen made a $100 cash donation to the blight fighters.
