MOUNT CLEMENS — Harper Woods resident Darci Repine was arraigned on Nov. 13 as a suspect in the death of a pedestrian in Harrison Township.

On the afternoon of Nov. 12, Macomb County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Metropolitan Parkway and North Pointe Parkway in Harrison Township for a pedestrian hit by a vehicle. Repine remained at the scene while two nurses and deputies administered CPR to the hit pedestrian, who was crossing North Pointe Parkway in an electric wheelchair. The Harrison Township Fire Department transported the victim to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Repine is charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated causing death, a 15-year felony, and was arraigned in 41B District Court by Magistrate Ryan Zemke. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 27, with District Court Judge Carrie Fuca.

"When someone drives under the influence and takes an innocent life, we will seek accountability for those actions,” Macomb County Prosecuting Attorney Peter Lucido said in a press release.

Repine has a $50,000 bond and did not have an attorney at press time.
