Razor blades placed on Trump election signs injure building inspector

Razor blades placed on the bottom of election signs cut the hands of a municipal worker who was moving them because they were in a right of way.

Deputies from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office reported they were sent to a home on the 3500 block of Sleeth Road at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7, for a suspicious circumstances call from a Commerce Township employee.

“The township’s building inspector was out removing political campaign signs from the road right of way,” the sheriff’s office reported. “Commerce Township ordinance requires signs to be 33 feet from the center of the roadway. The signs were located 24 feet from the center of the road, clearly within the right of way.”
