ESCANABA - A Gladstone man - accused of stealing a vehicle while under the influence then crashing it into Gladstone's police building - was recently bound over from Delta County District Court to circuit court.
Robert John Anderson, 33, of 614 Wisconsin Ave., lower apartment, Gladstone, remains lodged in the county jail on five charges, including four felonies relating to his arrest on Aug. 1.
Shortly after 6 p.m. that day, Anderson allegedly stole a vehicle at the overpass construction site on U.S. 2 & 41 in Gladstone, according to Gladstone Public Safety. The 2006 Toyota Camry belonged to a construction worker.
While being pursued by officers, Anderson drove the car to the Gladstone Public Safety building at 144th Ave. NE, where he crashed into a garage door, police said. He was taken into custody and transported by Rampart Ambulance to OSF St. Francis Hospital.
After being treated at the hospital, Anderson was lodged in the county jail where he remains in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond. He was bound over to the higher court last week.
Anderson is charged with the following five counts: malicious destruction of a building, more than $1,000 but less than $20,000, a five-year felony; unlawfully driving away an auto, a five-year felony; possession of the controlled substance Methyphenidate Hydrochloride, a two-year felony; assaulting/obstructing/resisting two police officers, a two-year felony; and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence, a 93-day misdemeanor.
