Halsey Booked for OWI

On Saturday December 18th, 2021 at approximately 8:00 pm, Officer McGuigan of the
Marshall County Sheriff`s Department observed a Todd Halsey operating a 2004 Kia
passenger car in the area of US 6 and Lapaz. Information was obtained that Todd did not
have a valid operators license. A traffic stop of the vehicle was initiated, and during
the traffic stop it was determined that Todd was operating a vehicle under the influence
of an alcoholic beverage. Todd was transported to the Plymouth Hospital where a sample of
his blood was collected. The certified blood test indicated that his blood alcohol level
was .253. It was also found that Todd had a prior conviction for OWI causing serious
bodily injury. He was charged with Operating a vehicle while intoxicated with priors and
lodged for a Level 5 felony charge.
Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable
cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only
probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent
throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to
a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable
doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
