TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is taking legal action to force the shutdown of a pipeline that carries oil beneath the channel linking Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Whitmer’s office notified Enbridge Inc. on Friday that it will revoke the easement granted in 1953 that allowed the Canadian company to run its Line 5 across the Straits of Mackinac. Her legal counsel says the move results from a persistent pattern of noncompliance with conditions for safely operating the line. Also, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel filed a lawsuit Friday seeking to stop the flow of oil through Line 5 within 180 days.

DETROIT (AP) — A judge has refused to stop certification of Detroit-area election results. Wayne County Judge Timothy Kenny said Friday that allegations of absentee ballot fraud in Detroit were “not credible.” It’s the third time that a judge has refused to intervene in steps that are necessary to bless the Michigan results. Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump by 146,000 votes. The lawsuit claims Republican challengers were removed from the TCF Center in Detroit while absentee ballots were being processed. The court filing also alleges that ballots were backdated, signatures on ballot envelopes weren’t verified and other irregularities. Election officials deny it.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A police officer in Michigan’s capital has been placed on leave after video shows an aggressive arrest of an assault suspect who pleaded “I can’t breathe.” The incident involved at least five Lansing officers who pinned the 25-year-old man to the ground Tuesday night and ordered him to stop resisting. Lansing police spokesman Robert Merritt says officers were responding to a report of a street fight involving five or six people. Merritt says a Taser was used and officers “delivered strikes.” The man was arrested, taken to a hospital for an evaluation and then transported to a police lockup.

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — The campus of Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan was closed Friday after an employee threatened and then died by suicide. The school near Saginaw, about 85 miles northwest of Detroit, had warned people Thursday night to avoid its Science West building until further notice. Early Friday, the school tweeted that the campus would be closed for the day. It said: “Police continue to be on campus, responding to an individual in distress.” The school says the employee died by suicide in the Science West building around 6:30 a.m. Friday. It says no students were involved in the incident and no one else was injured.
