LUDINGTON — A 25-year-old Ludington man who was arrested by Mason County sheriff’s deputies Tuesday afternoon, April 17, after allegedly fleeing from them in his vehicle was found in possession of heroin at the jail, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

Marshall Brault has been arraigned in 79th District Court on charges of third-degree fleeing and eluding, resisting and opposing police and fourth-offense habitual offender.

“Once in the jail, deputies found suspected heroin on the suspect,” said Cole. This information will be forwarded on to the Mason County Prosecutor’s Office.”

There were two 911 calls reporting a high-speed reckless vehicle. One call was placed on Sugar Grove Road at Custer Road, reporting a silver vehicle running a stop sign at a high speed. The second call was of the same vehicle passing vehicles in the center turn lane on US 10 at Meyers Road, the sheriff said.

“An MCSO deputy spotted the vehicle westbound on US 10 at Nelson and attempted to catch up with the vehicle,” said Cole. “The vehicle refused to stop and was eventually stopped on Delia and Court (streets) with the assistance of the Ludington Police Department. The driver was arrested after the driver refused to exit the vehicle. It was also learned he was wanted on an absconder warrant out of the Michigan Department of Corrections.”

Brault was arrested shortly after 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
