Rep. Neil Friske was apprehended around 2:45 a.m. “for a felony offense,” according to Lansing police spokesperson Jordan Gulkis.

While details about the alleged crime have not been forthcoming, a statement on his campaign’s Facebook page mentioned that “Rep Friske is always exercising his 2nd Amendment right.”

“We ask everyone for prayers and to stay tuned for updates directly from this campaign or Representative Friske himself,” added the statement.

Friske, who is seeking reelection in November, represents Charlevoix and Emmet counties and parts of Cheboygan, Chippewa, and Mackinac counties.

Atlanta judge arrested for attacking cop

Elsewhere, Douglas County Probate Judge Christina J. Peterson was arrested at an Atlanta nightclub early Thursday morning after reportedly assaulting a police officer.

The embattled Democrat official was at the Red Martini Restaurant and Lounge in Atlanta, Georgia, where she was eventually put in handcuffs for allegedly striking a cop and refusing to identify herself.

Peterson was charged with battery against a police officer and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers by threats or violence.

She is being held on a $5,000 bond, according to Fulton County inmate records.

Dem politician arrested for battery

“I can only confirm that a Christina Janae Peterson was arrested for battery in response to a 911 call,” a police spokesperson told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“The incident report is still processing as the incident appeared to have just happened early this morning.”

The outlet somehow got access to an unofficial police report that detailed how an officer found a woman crying in the valet area of the club.

As the cop was was attempting to speak to the upset woman, he was “struck on the head by the arrestee identified as Ms. Christina Peterson who refused to identify herself and appeared to be under the influence.”

Peterson is already in hot legal water after being found guilty of “systemic incompetence” in April.

She was accused of ignoring courthouse rules, making inappropriate remarks on social media, and mistreating courthouse personnel, while on the bench.

The Judicial Qualifications Commission were in total agreement when they voted to remove Peterson from office over the 30 counts of misconduct.

The Georgia Supreme Court has not yet decided if Peterson faces any criminal penalties for the misconduct charges.

Peterson lost her reelection bid in May, with the Democrat primary going to Douglasville attorney Valerie Vie.

Oakland Mayor’s home raided by FBI

Meanwhile, Oakland‘s soft-on-crime Mayor Sheng Thao could be looking at time herself after her home was raided by the FBI.

The Democrat politician’s home on Maiden Lane was raided around 5:30 a.m. on Thursday morning according to CBS San Francisco.

The FBI released a statement that they were “unable to provide additional information at this time.”

ABC News reported that the raid “also involves the IRS and U.S. Postal Service.”

A San Francisco FBI spokesperson said that the agency was utilizing “court authorized law enforcement” at Thao’s residence.

Agents were seen exiting Thao’s home with boxes and bags at around 10:00 in the morning.

In connection to the raid, FBI agents also searched 4320 View Crest Court, a property linked to Andy Duong, part owner of California Waste Solutions.

The recycling company made contributions to Thao’s campaign that have been under investigation.

The FBI also reportedly conducted a raid at 1211 Embarcadero Way in Oakland, which houses both California Waste Solutions and the Vietnamese American Business Association headquarters.

Thao went on a U.S. business delegation trip with the organization in 2023, which is led by the Duong family.

The raids occurred the day after a recall campaign to remove the far-left mayor from office received enough signatures to make it on the November ballot.

Oakland United to Recall Sheng Thao (OUST) gathered almost double the required 25,000 voter signatures to make the petition.

“This is a national embarrassment,” said Seneca Scott, who was behind the recall. “I think that she’s going to have to resign and we may have four mayors in the span of six months.”

“However, with the news today that the FBI raided her home, I think it’s going to be an easy campaign,” Scott noted.

“This is going to go very, very deep. I think we’re going to see a lot of things exposed in the City of Oakland.”
