http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2006611130442 A Veterans Day parade in Eastpointe turned calamitous Sunday when a motorcyclist in the procession barreled into the crowd and injured 11 spectators, some seriously. Police arrested the driver, a 56-year-old Clinton Township man, who they say was drunk. He faces drunken-driving charges today. Police withheld his name pending arraignment. The man was riding with a pack of 50 to 100 motorcyclists at the end of the parade route at 2:25 p.m. when his Harley-Davidson lurched into a crowd of 50 people cheering and waiving flags, knocking them over, said Eastpointe Police Chief Michael Lauretti, who witnessed the crash. A Cub Scout leader pushed some children out of the way before he was injured. The 11 injured spectators -- six adults and five children ages 10 to 17 -- were taken to hospitals. None of the injuries appeared life threatening, though several people suffered broken bones and internal injuries, Lauretti said. One woman was knocked unconscious. "It's not what you expect in a parade," Lauretti said. "The motorcyclists are very civic- and community-oriented, but this guy apparently had too much to drink." Police said it's unclear why the man drove into the crowd, but said he opened the throttle and veered off the road.
