Officers from the Plymouth Police Department were dispatched to the area of US 30 and Pioneer Drive on Wednesday, December 29th in reference to a possibly impaired driver doing donuts in the median.
A Deputy with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department located the suspect vehicle and attempted a traffic stop when the suspect vehicle took off. A short pursuit ensued, and the suspect vehicle ran a couple of stop signs before rolling one and a half times near 7th Road and Pine Road.
The suspect and driver, 21-year-old Damarcus Thomas of Fort Wayne attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended by officers from the Marshall County Police Department and the Plymouth Police Department.
Mr. Thomas received medical aid and was then incarcerated in the Marshall County Jail for Operating While Intoxicated and Resisting Law Enforcement.
