Reasons for the man who jumped off the Stewart J Court into lake Michigan have come to light.  

Sheriff Kim Cole says the man was told to stay in his quarters after he apparently violated the companies zero tolerance policy. Instead of staying in his quarters where he was ordered to go for the duration of the trip, crew members witnessed the the 41 yr-old  man climb over the rail and jump from the vessel.

He reportedly went overboard approximately four miles northwest of Big Sable Point on Lake Michigan. His body has still not yet been recovered.
