On Sunday, July 9, at approximately 12:30 in the morning, the Marshall County Central Dispatch Center received a call regarding a disabled vehicle in the middle of the roadway, around State Road 10, west of Thorn Road.
The driver of the vehicle was identified as 37-year-old Jose Luba of Dickson Street in Plymouth. Luba had been heading west on State Road 10 and drove off the roadway for an unknown reason before striking a utility pole. The vehicle became disabled in the roadway.
While speaking with Mr. Luba the county officer determined that there were signs of impairment. Luba was taken to the Plymouth Hospital to receive a certified blood test. The test revealed he was over the legal limit of .08.
Jose Luba complained of no injuries at the time but was checked out by the Hospital for Jail Clearance. Once released from the Hospital, Luba was taken to the Marshall County Jail where he was issued a cash bond of $1,500 and a court date of August 15 in the Marshall County Superior Court 2.
