COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - The booking sheet from the Branch County jail Wednesday tells the tale. The roads around the County were less than safe for a while when you consider who was behind the wheel in several instances. A 43-year old Huntington, Indiana woman was arrested for suspected driving under the influence of drugs, possession of marijuana, possession of alcohol in the vehicle and no insurance. Then there’s a 27-year old Coldwater man, picked up for operating under the influence and possession of a firearm while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Another Coldwater man, who’s 23-year old, didn’t have car insurance and was arrested also for drunk driving and a fourth suspected drunk driver, a 25-year old man from Battle Creek, was put behind bars for O-U-I and driving with a suspended license. A quartet of motorists who should know better and four is quite a high number, no pun intended, to be busted on a middle of the week Wednesday in Branch County for driving under the influence. Thankfully, no accidents or injuries happened as a result these drivers and it’s another reminder that more often than not, as the law enforcement public safety ads put it…You drink..You Drive…..You’re busted….
