The most ridiculous metro Detroit news stories of 2017


As we look back at the Dumpster fire of a year that was 2017, it’s important to set our sights closer to home and honor Michigan’s best — the best of the worst, that is.

That’s right, folks: It’s once again time for Metro Times’ annual Dubious Achievement Awards. OK, sure, this is really only the second year we’ve done it in a row since 2004 and 2005, and we stole the idea from Esquire magazine back then anyway. Nevertheless, we are excited to bring awareness to what we feel are Michigan’s most dubious, foolhardy, baffling, hilarious, or just plain bad stories.

Without further ado, we present to you this year’s Doobies. — MT Staff
