Arriving on the scene the deputy made contact with the driver of the vehicle, identified as 18 year old Alexis Schapiro of Lake Station. Schapiro was found to be under the influence of alcohol. She was transported to the Plymouth Hospital for a chemical test that showed her to be over twice the legal limit of alcohol.
Alexis Schapiro was booked into the Marshall County Jail for operating a vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person, operating a vehicle with an ACE of .15 or more, and illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage by a minor. Her cash bond was set at $1,500. She bonded out about 4:30 Sunday afternoon.
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.
