Pellston Man in Jail for Driving Drunk After Stopping to Help Police

A Pellston man is now in the Emmet County Jail following a conversation with police.

Troopers were called to a rollover accident at Larks Lake Road and West Robinson Road in Center Township at around 8:30 Sunday Night when a driver pulled up and told them where the woman involved in the accident had gone.

Troopers then noticed the man was drunk, and arrested him for getting behind the wheel.

With his tip, however, they were then able to find the woman whose car had rolled over. The man had previously helped the woman and her dog out of their car after the  crash, then drove them to a residence.

The woman was also arrested for drunk driving, after troopers say her blood alcohol content was two and a half times the legal limit.
