Saturday morning just before 7 the Marhall County Sheriff’s Department
received a report from a concerned citizen of a Ford Explorer traveling on US 30 near Gumwood Road all over the roadway. The caller said the driver had gone off the roadway and was within the ditch in that area.
Officer Les McFarland located the vehicle. It was believed that the driver was intoxicated. 37 year old Jamie Izzi from Hammond was transported to the hospital for a chemical test and then arrested for Operating While Intoxicated on a controlled substance. She was booked into the Marshall County Jail on a $1,500.00 cash bond.
Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
