On Saturday, November 12th, 2022 at approximately 1:50 in the morning, Officer Wozniak with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department initiated a traffic stop on a gray 2021 Honda in the area of U.S. 30 and Queen Road.

During the investigation, the driver was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol. Field sobriety tests were completed, and a certified blood draw showed the driver, 62-year-old Neil M. Mackay of Centerville, Ohio, to be over the legal limit of alcohol.

Mackay was transported to the Marshall County Jail and processed for Operating a vehicle with a BAC of .08 or more and Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Endangerment and held on a $1,500 cash bond.  His cash bond was paid at 12:35 Saturday afternoon and he was released with a court date.
