Troy — Friday the 13th was definitely unlucky for a 22-year-old Troy man, police said.

Police were called to a Secretary of State's Office on E. Long Lake Road shortly after 11 a.m. Friday on a disturbance run where the man was allegedly making threats and shouting obscenities at workers and others and in the presence of children in the facility.

According to the police report, the man had failed the written portion of his driver's test but was given a second chance — until he was observed talking on his cellular phone while taking the test.

When he was told he failed again, the man became irate, threw his test and pencil at a worker and then vaulted the counter after the worker in an effort to retrieve his identification.

Police were called as he yelled at the worker. Police arrested him, and he was subsequently charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct in the incident in which one officer was injured, police said.
