On Thursday, August 19th officers from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department initiated a traffic stop on a motorcycle operating on the roadway without a license plate at the BP gas station on Walnut Street and US 31 in Argos.

The driver provided a false name. He was later identified as 27-year-old Sean Patrick Byrne from Michigan City.  While being taken into custody, Byrne resisted and attempted to pull away from officers.

He was transported to the Marshall County Jail and booked in for False Informing and Resisting Arrest.

Sean was given the court date of August 31st court date in Marshal Superior Court II and a cash bond of $750.

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.
