Sheriff’s department honors three
Lt. RICK RICHARD
The McLean County Sheriff’s Department recently recognized three individuals who assisted at the scene of an incident where an intoxicated individual attempted to overpower Deputy Justin Cote during an investigation into a Driving While Impaired motorist complaint.
On July 27, Deputy Cote responded to a motorist complaint of an erratic driver on N.D. 37 near Garrison. Cote came upon the suspect vehicle south of Max on U.S. 83.
During this contact, the suspect initially attempted to leave in his own vehicle. He then tried to take Deputy Cote’s patrol vehicle and attempted to disarm Cote.
