The request for an officer at Kroger in Plymouth last Thursday resulted in the arrest of a 68-year-old Plymouth man.

Officer Fisher with the Plymouth Police Department was dispatched to 2001 North Michigan Street, the Kroger grocery store for a male subject who was inside the store and appeared to be intoxicated on December 14th at about 7:30 in the evening.

The male subject was identified as Vincent Elder of Hawthorn Road in Plymouth. During the investigation, the officer determined that Elder had driven his vehicle there and illegally parked it in a handicapped parking spot.

Vincent Elder was arrested for operating while intoxicated and transported to the Marshall County Jail where he was booked in and held on a $1,500 cash bond.  He was released at 9 a.m. Friday morning after his bond was posted. 

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.
