Plymouth Police Officer John Weir arrested a Rochester woman for Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Endangering a Person Friday just after noon.
Officer Weir was on patrol and observed a vehicle north bound on Michigan Street swerving and braking. He also saw the vehicle hit the island curb in front of Arrow Pest and when the driver moved to the left turn lane to pull into Taco Bell she failed to yield the right-of-way to south bond traffic.
The city officer saw the driver, 50 year old Patricia Ann Pizarro have a hard time keeping her balance as she exited the vehicle. A younger passenger exited the vehicle carrying a toddler and then removed a baby from the backseat of the vehicle.
Pizarro was taken into custody and transported to Saint Joseph Health System in Plymouth for testing. She was then lodged in the Marshall County Jail on a $1,500 cash bond.
