To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Michigan's Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

I'm trying to determine the number of people who attended WrestleMania 3, a sports event that took place on March 29, 1987, at the Pontiac Silverdome. I'm looking for any and all documents related to permits and police/security details requested by the event's promoter, WWE (then known as the World Wrestling Federation), for the event that day. These documents may may provide clarity as to how many people attended that day.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. The documents will be used in the course of reporting articles for Motherboard, VICE's science and technology news website.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request and I request that this be processed under the "media" fee category. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Nicholas Deleon

RE: FOIA REQUEST of April 04, 2016, Reference # W001324-040416

Dear Nicholas Deleon:

This letter is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request referenced above for the number of people that attended WrestleMania 1987 in Pontiac at the Silverdome. Also requested are permits, staffing and security details.
Your request for records that are  addressed above is denied because no such records exist. This was handled by the City of Pontiac, not the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
YOUR FURTHER LEGAL RIGHTS

To the extent that this response, in your opinion, constitutes a denial of your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) rights, your statutory remedies are as follows:
For FOIA denials, you may submit to the head of the public body a written appeal that specifically states the word "appeal" and identifies the reason or reasons for reversal of the denial. Within 10 business days after the head of the public body receives a written appeal he or she will do one of the following:
* Reverse the denial.
* Issue a written notice to you upholding the denial.
* Reverse the denial in part and issue a written notice to you upholding the denial in part.
* Under unusual circumstances, issue a notice extending for not more than 10 business days the time to respond.
You may begin a civil action in circuit court to compel the public body’s disclosure of the public records within 180 days after a public body’s final determination to deny a request.

You have the right to receive attorneys' fees and damages as provided in MCL 15.240 if, after judicial review, the court determines that the public body has not complied with MCL 15.235 and orders disclosure of all or a portion of a public record.
For fee appeals, if the public body requires a fee that, in your opinion, exceeds the amount permitted under its procedures and guidelines or MCL 15.234, you may submit to the head of the public body a written fee appeal for a fee reduction that specifically states the word "appeal" and identifies how the required fee exceeds the amount permitted. Within 10 business days after the head of the public body receives a written fee appeal, he or she will do one of the following:
* Waive the fee.
* Reduce the fee and issue a written determination to the requesting person indicating the basis for the remaining fee.
* Uphold the fee and issue a written determination to the requesting person indicating the basis for upholding the fee.
* If necessary, issue a notice extending for not more than 10 business days the time to respond.
Within 45 days after the head of the public body issues a written determination on the fee appeal or if the head of the public body failed to respond to the fee appeal, you may begin a civil action in circuit court.
