Paul Smith Calls 911 To Resolve A Dispute About A Construction Vehicle
Update: HuffPost Detroit has picked up on the story.
I received a copy of some shocking audio this morning from a series of 911 phone calls placed by Sterling Heights Councilman Paul Smith.
Apparently, Mr. Smith became upset by someone from a construction crew operating near his neighborhood driving their front-end loader up and down the street adjacent to his. By his own words, he stopped the construction vehicle by stepping in front of it and ordering it to stop, citing the fact that he is a member of City Council.
I have written at length about Mr. Smith’s antics and his inflated sense of importance, but I can’t top this. He blocked a 10,000 pound machine with his chest and yelled that he was on City Council.
Listen to the audio for yourself, and let me know what you think in the comments below.
