Typo in Drunk Driving Law22-Aug-2016

Thousands of drunk drivers in Missouri could go free if a typo in the law isn't corrected.

The loophole in the law would mean some drunk drivers, including ones involved in a deadly crash could be exonerated, based on the calibration of the breathalyzer equipment.

The legislature ended their session without correcting the issue.  

The Supreme Court included instruction on how the legislature should correct the error, which involves offenses over a 15 month period.

It is unknown if a special session will be held to make the correction.

One man is in serious condition after an officer involved shooting in Monroe County early this morning.

At approximately 12:03 a.m, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a white male attempting to break into a vehicle using a hatchet in Madison. 

When a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy arrived at the scene the suspect was not immediately located.  While on scene, the deputy observed 39 year old Kevin D. Marshall, of Madison in a vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle.  The vehicle failed to yield to the deputy and a pursuit ensued, eastbound on U.S. Highway 24. 

A short time later the pursuit was terminated near Paris.  At approximately 1:05 a.m., the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department saw Marshall walking southbound on Missouri 15.  He was  carrying a hatchet and a flashlight secured to a metal bat.  Marshall allegedly approached Monroe County deputies in a threatening manner, refused officers demands, and entered Hickman’s IGA. 

A Monroe City Police Department canine unit was called to the scene and officers entered the business to take Marshall into custody.  While inside, he reportedly attacked a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy. A Monroe City police officer and a Monroe County Sheriff’s deputy fired their duty weapons, hitting the Marshall twice.

Typo in Drunk Driving Law22-Aug-2016

Thousands of drunk drivers in Missouri could go free if a typo in the law isn't corrected.

The loophole in the law would mean some drunk drivers, including ones involved in a deadly crash could be exonerated, based on the calibration of the breathalyzer equipment.

The legislature ended their session without correcting the issue.  

The Supreme Court included instruction on how the legislature should correct the error, which involves offenses over a 15 month period.

It is unknown if a special session will be held to make the correction.

Officer Involved Shooting In Paris19-Aug-2016

One man is in serious condition after an officer involved shooting in Monroe County early this morning.

At approximately 12:03 a.m, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a white male attempting to break into a vehicle using a hatchet in Madison. 

When a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy arrived at the scene the suspect was not immediately located.  While on scene, the deputy observed 39 year old Kevin D. Marshall, of Madison in a vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle.  The vehicle failed to yield to the deputy and a pursuit ensued, eastbound on U.S. Highway 24. 

A short time later the pursuit was terminated near Paris.  At approximately 1:05 a.m., the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department saw Marshall walking southbound on Missouri 15.  He was  carrying a hatchet and a flashlight secured to a metal bat.  Marshall allegedly approached Monroe County deputies in a threatening manner, refused officers demands, and entered Hickman’s IGA. 

A Monroe City Police Department canine unit was called to the scene and officers entered the business to take Marshall into custody.  While inside, he reportedly attacked a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy. A Monroe City police officer and a Monroe County Sheriff’s deputy fired their duty weapons, hitting the Marshall twice.

He was transported to University Hospital in Columbia.  A deputy received minor injuries, and was also taken to University Hospital.
