After opening against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's orders and COVID-19 restrictions, the Capri Drive-In in Coldwater will not see punishment an prosecution.
According to Branch County Prosecutor Val White, the Michigan Attorney General's Office will have to decide if the matter will be pursued legally.
The Michigan State Police fled about about half a dozen calls that were made to Branch County Central Dispatch back on May 15th as the Capri opened for the 2020 season. The line of vehicles waiting to get in that night stretched from the Capri east along U.S. 12.
The owners of the drive-in promised to use social distancing guidelines and posted a complete list of rules to keep patrons safe on the drive in's Facebook page prior.
The Capri plans to show movies again this coming weekend, however all theaters in Michigan can not open until at least June 12th under Governor Whitmer's "Safer at Home" order.
