Multiple 911 calls reported a car tveling north on Washington across the square through festival- goers at speed as high as 100 mph. As officer Veech headed to the square, a call came in from Logan dispatch that several people who were on the square were at the sus- pect's residence in the 200 block of N. Marion St. Arriving at the suspect's residence, Officer Veech was approached by a witness who reported he had to pull his family out of the way to avoid being hit. He then jumped in his truck fol- lowed the suspect to his house to see what was going on. A room- mate of the suspect stated someone struck the suspect in the face and knocked him out. While officer Veech was sorting out everyone's statements, several cars drove by and the occupants reported what they had observed on the square. After a few minutes, a large group of people came walk- ing toward the suspect's residence and all reported they had been on the square and had observed what happened. Names and telephone numbers were taken from the wit- nesses. The suspect stated he was not the driver of the car, but his room- mate was. When the roommate was asked if he was driving the car he stated he didn't drive the car and didn't know what it happened until the crowd showed up. After further conversation, the suspect stated he going over the speed limit. The suspect was arrested for driving on a suspended license and for reckless driving. The suspect asked how he could be arrested if the police officer did not see him driving. Ofc. Veech explained the arrest was being made on the basis of multiple witnesses who were pretty much all standing in the front yard - including the guy who punched him out. After being arrested, and on the way to the county jail, the suspect again asked how it was legal to be arrested because no officer saw him driving across the square. At the county jail the suspect admitted to stopping at a bar after work, con- suming alcohol, and driving home across the square. A copy of the suspect's driving record shows multiple offenses for.., speeding, GDL violations, and suspensions\\;revocations. At the time of this offense this suspect had a restricted driving permit for multiple violations in under a 24 months period, and court super- vision out of Logan and Macon counties. The witness who had punched the suspect in the nose, knock- ing him out, admitted to punch- ing the suspect. He said that he was extremely upset because the suspect drove his car, narrowly missing his infant son in a stroller. Arrested, the witness said that his actions may not have been the best, but he felt like his action was needed. The investigation is ongoing. Additional charges are expected.
