51 year old Mark L. Freet of Plymouth was arrested last Wednesday evening by Plymouth Police Officer Shanna Gilmer after a concerned citizen advised of a male stumbling down the roadway on West Madison Street.
Officer Gilmer located Freet at 5th and Corbin Streets. He was highly intoxicated. After being transported to the Marshall County Jail he became disruptive and uncooperative. He received an additional charge of Battery by Bodily Waste on a member of the jail staff.
Mark Freet was booked into the jail with a $1,500 cash bond and given a court date of May 15th in Superior Court II.
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.
