Alcohol a Factor in Marshall County Accident


There were no injuries in a rollover accident in Marshall County in the overnight hours on Sunday, but an investigation found that alcohol played a part in the crash.

Emergency personnel were called to scene where officers found that a car driven by 20-year-old Emmanuel Johnson left the side of the roadway in the 5000 block of Michigan Road, struck two mailboxes and rolled onto its top. The car came to rest in the middle of Michigan Road.

Officers conducted an investigation where alcohol was determined to be a factor in the 4 a.m. accident. Johnson refused treatment at the scene and was taken into custody. He was given a preliminary charge of Illegal Consumption of Alcohol which is a Class C misdemeanor.

A report was sent to the Marshall County Prosecutor’s office for review and consideration of charges against four other occupants in the car for Illegal Consumption of Alcohol: 23-year-old Nakilee Weni, 19-year-old Thomas Boulard, 19-year-old Isaias Membreno and a juvenile.
