Detroit salon owner tracks down stolen car, wrestles suspected thief to ground

Detroit — Bianca Chambers had Facebook Live rolling on her cellphone Wednesday as she stormed into a westside beauty salon and accused a man of stealing her Mercedes Benz, seconds before wrestling him to the ground amid the sounds of thumping and cussing.

In a second video, posted minutes later in the parking lot outside the salon, Chambers announced that she had just made a citizen’s arrest and, with the help of strangers, held the man until officers arrived.

But police say the incident at the 7 Days West salon on Grand River near Lyndon, in which the man was dragged outside by his dreadlocks, wasn’t a legal citizen’s arrest, but a felonious assault.

Chambers, 32, and her alleged accomplices weren’t arrested, police said, because the victim refused to press charges. Instead, the man was taken into custody for possession of stolen property — the 2016 Mercedes 300C.
