In a strange twist, a Wayne County man charged with robbing his grandmother is claiming there was no crime.
And his grandma tells news 8 she agrees.
Wayne County Sheriff's deputies say Danny Hollier was arrested for robbery after his grandmother filed a complaint against him.
She wrote in a statement to deputies that when she returned from a shopping trip at the Wal Mart in Newark, her grandson did not go toward home. Instead she wrote that he turned left onto Redfield Street in the Village of Clyde,
Her statement to police said: "Once we got onto Redfield street, Danny pulled over. I had my pocket book on the floor near my feet. Once Danny pulled over, he leaned over and grabbed my pocket book, opened my door, and told me to get out. I went to grab my pocket book from him but I couldn't reach it. I told Danny to give me my pocket book and I would get out. Danny wouldn't give it to me, he just said stay here I will be back. I was pulling on Danny's seat belt trying to get him to give me back my pocket book."
The statement continues and said: "I was too weak to fight with him anymore, so I got out of the car."
Wayne County Sheriff's Office said Baker walked to a gas station and called 911.
This all happened aroung 1:30am on Monday morning.
News 8 spoke with both Hollier and Baker at their home in Clyde.
Baker said that her grandson never stole her purse and that she did not struggle with him.
She said the purse was caught under the Christmas gifts they had bought.
"I love him with all my heart and the gifts that we bought were Christmas gifts, when he went through the gifts, he brought the pocket book right back," said Mary Baker, grandmother.
Hollier did not give a clear answer as to why he asked his grandmother to get out of the car in the early morning hours, only to say that she could not get in her house without keys.
"The only struggle was that we were arguing, she didn't want to get out and I didn't want to take her to the party that I was going to," said Danny Hollier.
Deputies say Hollier has a history of arrests and the robbery charge will stand for now.
Hollier is scheduled back in court on January 23.
