Police Arrest Man Who Wiped His Nose on Clerk Instead of Wearing a Mask

A 68-year-old man is in police custody, pending charges, after allegedly wiping his nose and face on the shirt of a Dollar Tree clerk who asked him to wear a mask inside the store.

The incident took place on Saturday in Holly, Michigan, and the man left in a large, white van.

After a clerk advised the man that he needed to wear a mask in the store, he approached her and wiped his nose on her sleeve, saying “here, I will use this as a mask.”

Jerry Narsh, police chief of Holly, confirmed the arrest of the Linden man, and said police would make their case to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office, which would decide on charges Tuesday morning.
