On Sunday, October 1st, at approximately 3:10 a.m., a Plymouth Police Officer was in the area of Jefferson and Fifth Street when he observed an electric bicycle riding east on Jefferson Street at a high rate of speed.
The bicycle appeared to be being followed by a vehicle as they traveled onto Fifth Street. The rider proceeded to ride east onto Madison Street without stopping or signaling his turns.
The rider was eventually identified as 21-year-old Tristen H. Moyer, of the 1,200 block of North Michigan Street in Plymouth.
When the officer attempted to stop Tristen, he resisted law enforcement and began to ride down an alleyway before crashing.
Tristen Moyer was quickly taken into custody and transported to the St. Joseph Hospital in Plymouth and then the Marshall County Jail. He faces pending criminal charges of Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated with a Prior, Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Over .15, and Resisting Law Enforcement. The cash bond for Moyer was paid at about 1:30 Sunday afternoon and he was released.
Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is a mere 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.
