MI Police Unity Team honors fallen trooper with memorial ride

COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WOOD) — The Michigan Police Unity Team based in Lansing remembered and honored Michigan State Police Trooper Timothy O’Neill in a memorial bike ride Sunday afternoon.

The three-year veteran was on patrol on Sept. 20 when his motorcycle  crashed near Wolverine Boulevard and Belding Road NE in Plainfield  Township.

O’Neill was rushed to the hospital, where he later died.

That ride started from Fifth Third Ballpark around noon Sunday  traveling from the ballpark on the White Pine Trail to MSP Rockford Post  where Trooper O’Neill was assigned.

The group also rode to the crash site and then returned to the ballpark around 2:30 p.m.

“We always want to remember the ones that have made the ultimate  sacrifice,” Michigan State University Police Officer Tom Miller said.  “The fallen are never forgotten.”
