On Sunday, April 23rd, around 7:30 in the morning, Marshall County Police Officers were dispatched to a single-vehicle accident on U.S. 30 at Fir Road.

The report from Officer Matt Geiger states that Ricky D. Armstrong, age 49, of Ft. Wayne, had lost control of his vehicle and went off the roadway and that he had been drinking.

Officer Geiger offered Mr. Armstrong a certified test.  It was determined that Mr. Armstrong was almost three times the legal limit. He was taken to Plymouth Hospital for medical clearance and then booked into the Marshall County Jail for Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated over .15%.

Ricky Armstrong was given a court date of May 2nd and a cash bond of $1505.

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.
