Process Server Cited for Trespassing
An overzealous process server was ticketed for trespassing after he forced his way into a Bloomfield Hills office to serve legal papers last week, police said.
According to reports, officers with the Bloomfield Hills Department of Public Safety responded to the 200 block of East Long Lake Road at about 10:50 a.m. on April 11, after a receptionist reported the intrusion.
An office manager told police the server forced their way past the receptionist and left legal documents for an employee before leaving abruptly. It was unclear from reports if the employee was present.
Chief Rick Matott said officers identified the man and cited him for trespassing on the premises, which is a civil infraction that typically carries a fine.
"He was told to stop and didn't and moved passed the reception area," Matott said. "Usually they're pretty congenial guys. They've got a job to do and normally don't have to break the law to do it, but this was different."
