The sheep’s in the meadow, the car’s in the pasture?
If your driver's license is suspended, your vehicle isn't registered, you don't have a court-mandated ignition interlock device in your car and there's a warrant out for your arrest, you'd better not get pulled over.
And if, failing that, you try to outrun the law in an 18-year-old car, you probably shouldn't drive it into a pasture.
According to a press release from the O’Brien County Sheriff's Department, a deputy attempted to stop a white 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse near 320th Street and Starling Avenue at 5:24 p.m. Oct. 2.
The driver, Zachary Eon Buckwald, 27, of Sheldon, Iowa, attempted to flee the deputy. After driving into a pasture near 2895 Tyler Ave., Buckwald attempted to flee on foot and was apprehended.
Buckwald faces numerous charges related to the incident, including operating a non-registered vehicle, fraudulent use of registration, driving while license is suspended, stop sign violation, speeding, eluding, failure to have ignition interlock when required and reckless driving. In addition to these charges, Buckwald was wanted on a Sioux County arrest warrant for contempt of court.
He was taken to the O'Brien County Jail.
Silly man, guns are for non-felons!
Common sense appears to have lapsed in more than one O'Brien County criminal recently.
When an O'Brien County Sheriff's deputy arrived at the O’Brien County Sportsman’s shooting range, 2968 Nettle Ave., Oct. 2 to do some firearms training, the deputy noticed a familiar face. A familiar face who may have a felony conviction, packing heat.
It turned out that the man, 58-year-old William Glenn Collins of Hartley, Iowa, was a convicted felon. Collins was arrested and his Sig Sauer .45 caliber handgun seized.
Collins faces a charge of felon in possession/control of a firearm.
