A call about a single-vehicle accident early Sunday morning, January 7th ended with the driver being arrested.

At approximately 2:40 a.m. the Marshall County Central Dispatch Center received a call about a single-vehicle accident in the 10,000 block of King Road. Deputy Evan Ash began an investigation and determined that a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 30-year-old Brady Koz of Argos was heading southbound on King Road when the vehicle veered off the roadway striking a large stump, mailboxes, and an REMC utility pole.

It was determined that Koz was under the influence of alcohol. A field sobriety test and a later certified chemical test showed him to be over two times the legal limit of alcohol.

Brady Koz was arrested and lodged in the Marshall County Jail for operating while intoxicated .15 or greater and held on a $1,500 cash bond.

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.
