Sunday evening, April 2nd, at approximately 9:10, Marshall County Central Dispatch received a 911 call about a vehicle on U.S. 6 near Sycamore Road that ran off the roadway, hit two mailboxes and sustained front end damage. The vehicle continued westbound on U.S. 6 until Michigan Road where it went southbound.
Officer Wozniak with the Sheriff’s Department located the suspected vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. His report said the vehicle was smoking, leaking fluids and had severe front end damage.
The driver of the vehicle, Ethan L. Nettrouer, age 22, of W. Adams Street in Plymouth, was found to be under the influence of alcohol. Field sobriety tests were completed, and a certified test later showed him to be over two times the legal limit of alcohol.
He was transported to the Marshall County Jail and processed for Operating a Vehicle with a BAC of .15 or more, Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Endangerment and Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident. The cash bond for Ethan Nettrouer was set at $1,500.00.
