The Macomb Township man was arrested Tuesday night in the 23 Mile and Gratiot area in Chesterfield Township.
An obscenity-laced tirade in a Chesterfield Township drive-thru led to a Macomb Township man's tenth drunken driving arrest, police said Wednesday.

The 63-year-old man was arraigned Monday in 41A District Court in Shelby Township for his alleged involvement in the Macomb Township crime.
A charge against a Chesterfield Township man was reduced Monday from second-degree to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to police. Antonino Giannola, 63, was initially charged with the felony offense over the weekend, but the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office changed the charge to a misdemeanor after further reviewing the case. In this instance, second-degree CSC would have been merited if authorities considered Giannola to be in a position of authority over the 15-year-old girl who reported the attack, the Macomb County Sheriff's Office said. “The relationship between the two was not such that they determined him to be in a position of authority over the girl," Sheriff's Lt. John Michalke said of the decision made by the …
