Man Tries To Escape Police In A Paddle Boat

"They call me Pond.  James Pond."

"Michigan Department of Corrections and Waterford Township Police officers were trying to arrest Mark Rood on a felony fugitive warrant for absconding from probation, according to a release issued today by the Waterford Township Police.

They spotted Rood and his father, Mark Rood Sr., 52, standing in the driveway of a home in the 3800 block of Athens at 10:07 a.m. Friday, near West Walton and Sashabaw Road.
But when officers tried to arrest the younger Rood, his father blocked them while Rood took off toward Lake Oakland.

Officers chased him to the lake, where he jumped into a neighbor’s paddle boat and headed out toward open water. But the paddle boat capsized, dumping Rood into the lake."
