Drunk driver damages several cars in accident


The Logan County Sheriff’s Office was called out to County Road 11 Sunday morning around 4:30 in reference to an accident.

Officers went to the 3500 block of County Road 11 where they found Jonas Stokes standing in a yard.

Stokes was driving on 11 when he failed to negotiate a curve and went off the east side of the roadway and onto a residential driveway.

He then struck two parked cars at the residence.  Those two cars then were pushed into the garage which damaged two more vehicles that were parked inside.

Stokes did not cooperate with officers refusing to give his name and refusing local EMS treatment.

Law enforcement could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Stokes.  His pupils were dilated.

Stokes was placed under arrest for OVI.

Stokes made various derogatory and racial comments to officers.

He became unruly at the Logan County Jail and was placed in a restraint chair.

Two of the five vehicles involved in the crash sustained heavy, disabling damage.
