HOWELL – Howell Police squash rumors that one of their own was injured in a crash on the morning of June 26.
Media outlet, The Lakewood Scoop, reported that a Howell officer was injured in a crash via Twitter. Howell Police took to Facebook to contest this information, stating:
“Completely irresponsible for the Lakewood Scoop to make such a report. NO Howell officer was involved in any type of crash this morning. False reports such as these cause panic to families of the officers who are working. Shame!”
Sergeant Christian Antunez from the Howell Township Police Department also confirmed that this information is false and no officer has been injured.
