LUDINGTON — The driver of the woman who tried to kick out a Ludington police car window early Saturday morning is a Michigan State Police trooper who was arrested for drunk driving.

Trooper Sammy Seymour, a Ludington resident, and his sister, Kimberly Septrion, were arrested at the intersection of Loomis and Delia streets following a traffic stop at 2:19 a.m. by the Ludington Police Department, according to Ludington Police Chief Mark Barnett.

Septrion “reportedly became belligerent and attempted to kick the back window out of a Mason County Sheriff’s Office patrol car,” according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole. “She then reportedly assaulted an LPD officer and resisted a county deputy.”

Seymour, who is assigned to the Hart post (CORRECTION: Seymour had previously been assigned to the Hart post but is now assigned to the Cadillac post, according to Chief Barnett), is accused of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and having an open intoxicant in the vehicle. Septrion is accused of resisting and opposing police and attempted malicious destruction of police property. (UPDATED) Barnett said he was not carrying a weapon at the time of the arrested.

Seymour’s bond was set at $2,500, 10 percent, of which he posted.
