On Wednesday, July 26, just before 9 p.m., officers with the Plymouth Police Department attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The suspect vehicle proceeded to accelerate at a high rate of speed as it turned from Michigan Street to the on-ramp for U.S. 30 East.

The driver of the Yukon, Charles Elmore, 38 of Bitter Root Drive in Plymouth, came to a stop on U.S. 30 East near Plymouth-Goshen Trail.

During the investigation, it was suspected that Charles Elmore was driving the vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. While attempting to detain Charles, he actively resisted and was taken into custody.
