Ypsilanti man charged after hopping fence at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Macomb County

Curtis Cunningham

An Ypsilanti man is facing charges after authorities say he hopped a fence at Selfridge Air National Guard Base last week.

Curtis Cunningham, 25, was arrested after Macomb County Sheriff's deputies were called to the military installation around 6 a.m. June 8.

Authorities said Cunningham, who was intoxicated, told them he was a passenger in a vehicle when he got into an argument with the driver. He got out of the vehicle and started walking, but he didn't know where he was.

Cunningham told authorities he saw lights at Selfridge, so he jumped the fence to look for shelter. He was not hurt.

Security found him and called deputies. Authorities said he had an unloaded gun with no magazine. The weapon was registered to him.

He is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a concealed pistol while under the influence, and trespassing. He was given a $10,000 personal recognizance bond, and is due back in court June 21.
