Ludington man sent to prison for fleeing, resisting police

LUDINGTON — Enrice Domingo Morin, 27, of Ludington was sentenced Tuesday in Mason County’s 51st Circuit Court to serve four to 20 years in prison in relation to an incident that took place in April. 

According to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole, on Saturday, April 17, 2022, a sheriff’s deputy clocked a vehicle traveling 87 mph in a 40 mph zone eastbound on US 10 near Pere Marquette Highway at 10:14 p.m. Cole said the vehicle fled and then cut into the West Coast Car Wash parking lot, 90 S. Pere Marquette Highway.

“The suspect vehicle traveled through the parking lot of the car wash, around the building and back onto US-10 westbound,” Cole said. “The vehicle then attempted to elude deputies by cutting into the Comfort Inn parking lot, driving at high speed through the hotel parking lot, and behind the hotel.

A second MCSO deputy arrived in the Comfort Inn park lot to assist and pulled around the east side of the building.  The suspect vehicle drove head-on into the second deputy causing a collision.  No injuries were reported in the crash.  The patrol car sustained moderate damage and the suspect vehicle considerable damage.

Morin allegedly then exited his vehicle and fled on foot, eastbound from the crash and into the Big Boy parking lot.

“Two deputies attempted to take the suspect into custody, however, he resisted, fighting through a taser deployment and causing minor injuries to both deputies,” Cole said.

During a blood draw at the hospital, he assaulted a third deputy who was attempting to assist a Spectrum Health lab tec during the blood draw. Deputies were assisted by Ludington Police Department.

He was charged with eight counts including two counts of fleeing a police officer third degree, five counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer and one count of operating a vehicle with a high blood alcohol content. Two of the assaulting a police officer charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement. His sentencing included four to 20 years for fleeing on one count and five to 20 years for fleeing on additional count; 46 months to 15 years for each of the resisting charges. Credit was given for two days served in jail, sentencings will run concurrent. 

Morin has a long criminal history that includes multiple drug offenses, domestic violence, breaking and entering, and arson.
