Deputy assaulted, man tased & woman dragged by breast at Hank Williams, Jr. show at DTE

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office is investigating two incidents at a concert at DTE Energy Music Theatre overnight.

According to deputies, they responded to an intoxicated disorderly person in the pavilion. As they approached the stage, the suspect then punched a deputy. As deputies tried to control the 22-year-old man, his father, a 44-year-old Monroe man, put a deputy in a chokehold.

Deputies eventually tased the 22-year-old man, and both were taken into custody and lodged at the Oakland County Jail.

Just a few minutes after the first incident, deputies were called because a drunk person was assaulting an employee.

It started when the 18-year-old woman asked to see the suspect's ticket and seating assignment. That's when he pushed the employee back, hit her with his elbow in her throat and "grabbed her by her breast and then dragged her around."

The 44-year-old man was eventually taken into custody.

Hank Williams, Jr. and Chris Stapleton were performing last night.
