An officer with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Gary woman on multiple charges a week ago.

On Thursday, December 21st Deputy Truty stopped a vehicle just after 11 p.m. for a moving violation on U.S. 31 near State Road 10. 

The driver was identified as Shekina Sharane Hollis, 31, of Gary. During the investigation, the officer observed the driver exhibiting signs of alcohol intoxication.

Ms. Hollis was transported to the Marshall County Jail and booked for Operating a Vehicle while intoxicated .08% or more, Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated Endangering, Resisting Law Enforcement, Battery on Law Enforcement by Bodily waste, and Operating a Vehicle Never Licensed. Her cash bond was set at $1,500.

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an 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.
