A 34-year-old West Bloomfield man, who is a Fox 2 news reporter, was arrested at about 3:30 a.m. Dec. 9 for drunk driving. Police noticed the man driving slowly behind the ABC Warehouse on Orchard Lake Road and went to investigate. The man told police he was waiting for his girlfriend, but later changed his story to say he was waiting for his wife. He then could not explain why he was behind a closed business at 3:30 a.m.
According to police, it was obvious the man had been drinking. He was asked to step out of the car and that’s when police noticed his pants were unzipped. He refused a preliminary breath test, but was later tested at the police station at .17 blood alcohol content.

Reporter Charlie LeDuff has joined WJBK (Fox 2) in Detroit after leaving The Detroit News in October.
High-profile multimedia reporter Charlie LeDuff, who left The Detroit News in October after two years, has joined Detroit Fox affiliate WJBK Ch. 2 to do on-air journalism.
“People that don’t read watch TV. People that do read watch TV,” he told me earlier tonight. His first report, a follow-up story on a previous Fox 2 piece he did on Detroit EMT problems, aired tonight on WJBK’s 10 p.m. newscast.
LeDuff did a joint Fox 2-Detroit News video and print package in September on problems with city’s ambulance service, which served as a sort of try-out for his new job. He’s also done video work for the Discovery Channel and the BBC. At The News, he hosted for a time a weekly web show, “Hold The Onions,” at Detroit’s American Coney Island during which he interviewed some of the region’s highest profile figures, such as Monica Conyers, Sam Riddle and L. Brooks Patterson.
“After a couple of days of doing this, I have a whole new respect for what these people do,” he said about his new TV gig.
