Dearborn police officers' response to reports of a public dispute between a boyfriend and girlfriend on Saturday resulted in the arrest of three people.
According to Dearborn police reports, several calls came in around 2:30 that afternoon that a man and woman were arguing loudly near the Westborn Mall complex. When police arrived, they separated the two for questioning, at which point an officer discovered a concealed weapon on the man.
The man resisted arrest and was taken to the ground by the officer, at which point he sustained a laceration to his nose. The man was taken to the hospital for treatment.
A search of the woman's name found several warrants for her arrest out of Dearborn Heights. She was arrested and searched, revealing that she was carrying marijuana and "blunt wrap" papers, according to police.
As the scene unfolded, police also encountered a third woman passed out in a nearby F-150, who said she knew the couple and was with them. Police ran her name and found that she had a warrant out of Dearborn.
The man, a 42-year-old Taylor resident, was charged with resisting arrest, parole violation, concealing a weapon, and violation of his commitments as a registered sex offender.
The woman, a 25-year-old Taylor resident, was charged with possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.
