Pair arrested following crash; warrant sought for ‘Peeping Tom.’


SCOTTVILLE – A 27-year-old Kentwood man was arrested by Mason County sheriff’s deputies on charges of operating while intoxicated, driving while license suspended (DWLS), open intoxicants and no insurance and his passenger, a 39-year-old Fountain woman, was arrested on charges of open intoxicants and possession of a schedule 4 drug Sunday, May 21, after their vehicle crashed into a tree in front of McPhail Field on State Street near Reinberg Road, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

“The Mason/Oceana 911 Center received a call reporting a reckless driver traveling eastbound on US 10 in Amber Township,” Cole said. “A ‘be on the lookout’ (BOL) was put out and a MCSO deputy on patrol in Scottville clocked the vehicle traveling at 101 in a 40 zone on radar entering the City of Scottville. As the deputy turned his patrol car around, the vehicle ran off the road, jumped a curb and struck a tree. Neither occupant was injured and both were arrested.”

In a separate matter, a warrant is being requested for probation violation for a 56-year-old Ludington man who was reportedly “wearing binoculars and looking in windows,” the sheriff said. “He was spotted by a deputy crawling through tall grass in a person’s yard.”

The incident occurred Friday, May 19, at 2:36 p.m. on Brye Road and First Street in Amber Township. It was initially dispatched as a “suspicious situation,” Cole said.
