Gladwin man cited for hitting home with quad, fleeing scene

Roscommon County – The Michigan State Police (MSP) Houghton Lake Post investigated damage to a residence in Lake Township caused by a four-wheeler. Troopers were called to the residence on West Shore Drive on April 25, 2022, to investigate the crash. The homeowner reported someone riding a four-wheeler struck the home and fled the scene. The incident occurred on April 24th at approximately 3:00 p.m. Surveillance footage captured the suspect riding the four-wheeler on West Shore Drive.

A news release was sent out asking for help identifying the suspect. A deputy from the Roscommon County Sheriff’s Department contacted the MSP Houghton Lake Post. The deputy stated he had been dispatched to a civil disturbance and one of the parties involved told him 37-year-old Rob Scott Schmidt Jr from Gladwin was the person responsible for the damage to the home.

A search warrant was executed at Schmidt’s residence in May and the four-wheeler was seized. During the search warrant, Schmidt was interviewed and issued a citation for operating an ORV in a careless manner as well as failing to report damage to fixtures after an accident. In June 2022, Schmidt pled guilty in the 82 District Court in Roscommon County to failing to report damage to fixtures after an accident.
