A Gwinn man was arrested Friday night for a domestic violence incident in which he allegedly used a knife.

This afternoon, the Marquette County Sheriff’s Department has issued a “be on the lookout” (BOLO) for the man allegedly armed with a knife during a domestic incident.

“The subject is wanted for questioning in the a domestic situation where he did (allegedly) use a knife as a threatening tool,” the BOLO stated.
That BOLO was canceled tonight when the man was taken into custody.

39-year-old Stephen Wayne Field Jr., of Gwinn, MI was arrested on Friday night, April 20, 2018.

The BOLO was readout about 6 hours earlier to all regional law enforcement during a broadcast to all cars by Negaunee Regional Dispatch.

The BOLO said Field was driving a green 2004 F-150 extended cab pickup truck (rusty truck) for questioning in a domestic violence incident involving a knife

“He is possibly armed with said knife,” the dispatcher said during the BOLO.
Field has former addresses listed in Palmer, Negaunee, Ishpeming, and Marquette, MI.

Meanwhile, in an unrelated case, a 17-year-old Marquette County youth was arrested Thursday afternoon for domestic battery – and she registered a .08 on a portable breath test (PBT) that measures alcohol intake. U.P. Breaking News has made an editorial decision not to release the young woman’s name because it was her first offense – and her young age and potential to learn from the experience.

And no arrests were made Thursday night in Delta County, when it was reported a youth had punched his girlfriend in the face.

A third party tipped off police who said the victims that had confided the domestic assault and would deny she was punched if contacted by police. However, police located both the male and female – an apparently decided there was not enough physical evidence or other evidence to warrant an arrest.

These were among numerous domestic violence cases reported since Thursday afternoon across the U.P. including once case that turned into a meth probe and another that led to the arrest of the now ex-Finlandia University Football Coach.
