A short time later the vehicle was located on 5C Road east of Hawthorn. The driver, 49-year-old Jesus Arroyo of Jackson Heights in Plymouth was determined to have been drinking.

His cash bond was paid at about 7:30 Saturday morning and he was released on bond.

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.
