Star Collision Carstar general manager Terry VandenToorn said the deer was spotted running down the pavement in Grand Rapids before it went into the business. It came in through a delivery door and got stuck inside.

It ran round inside the shop before employees cornered it at the bottom of a set of stairs. While they were watching it, they took photos and video of the deer. The authorities tranquilised the deer and took it away to be released.
