Officer Steve DeLee with the Plymouth Police Department was working traffic enforcement on North Michigan Street Sunday, August 22nd when he saw a vehicle southbound that appeared to be traveling at an extreme high rate of speed.
During a traffic stop in the 1800 block of North Michigan Street, the driver was determined to have been consuming alcohol.
A chemical test showed 26-year-old Jonnie Sanchez of Plymouth to be intoxicated. He was arrested and taken to Marshall County Jail with a charge of OWI and Reckless Driving. He was held on a $1,500 cash bond and given a September 7th court date in Marshall Superior Court II.
