RIVERVIEW – A drunken motorcyclist was arrested after he struck two patrons in the outdoor deck area at Slip Mahoney’s Bar and Grill, 18480 Fort St., about 11:30 p.m. July 31.
The man, who reportedly was inexperienced with his ride and under the influence of alcohol, was attempting to put the motorcycle into gear when he drove into the deck area.
Two customers were treated by Riverview Fire Department personnel for minor injuries. The motorcyclist, a 28-year-old Brownstown Township resident — was unhurt.
The owner of the motorcycle — not the driver — retrieved the keys and drove away on the motorcycle before anyone got his name or license plate number.
The customers took themselves to Henry Ford Hospital-Wyandotte where they were treated for bruising, swelling and cuts.
The Riverview Police Department Detective Bureau submitted a warrant request with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.
