Detroit Street Skier Gets Busted on Live Newscast

ameliatraynor |

A skier being towed on the snowy roads of metro Detroit was pulled over after inadvertently appearing on a live local newscast, following the Superbowl on Sunday night. A winter storm has dumped over 1 and 1/2 feet on parts of Michigan, the most snow Detroit has seen since 1974.

“When I first turned onto 10 Mile, I was like, ‘OK, we’re doing this’,” said Jacob Lachowski, the skier.

Lachowski and two friends, all students at Lawrence Tech in Southfield, were pulled over by the Southfield police shortly after being captured by the news crew. The officer told the trio to head home.

“He kind of gives me the disappointed dad-look like, ‘hmmm, kids,'” said Lachowski.

The metro Detroit area saw 16.7 inches of snow, making this the third snowiest storm of all time. 

Here are the top 5 snow storms on record:

  1. 24.5″    April 6, 1886
  2. 19.3″    December 1-2, 1974
  3. 16.7″    February 1-2, 2015
  4. 16.1″    March 4-5, 1900  16.1
  5. 14.0″    February 28-March 1, 1900  14.0

Detroit may see periods of light snow Saturday night into Sunday.

  2. Please please snowbrains. You recently have started the same copy and paste routine that UN has been boring use for years with. I understand it’s difficult and time consuming to write material. But don’t follow in the footsteps of UN. I noticed the change last week. Articles started popping up that were just copied and pasted to your site.

    Don’t go down that trail.

    1. Hey Al, we hear ya and we’ll behave. This was sent to us by a SnowBrains fan who also gave us the write up. We try to always share stuff people send us. thanks.
