Protestors Vandalize State Attorney General’s Midland Home

Attorney General Bill Schuette holds Flint news conference

Dozens of protestors converged on Midland Wednesday afternoon to call for the immediate shutdown of Enbridge Energy’s aging oil pipeline beneath the Mackinac Straits, describing it as a potentially existential threat to Michigan’s environment should it leak.

A group of some 50 people smeared what turned out to be chocolate syrup on the driveway and the side of State Attorney General Bill Schuette’s Midland home while knocking on the door and leaving various posters and pamphlets.

Schuette himself was out of town at a conference of state attorney’s general, but his wife was inside the house at the time.

No arrests were made at either Schuette’s home or along east bound US-10 in the West Wackerly/Dublin area where other protestors placed a large banner or billboard.

Both incidents remain under investigation.
