At 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies conducted a traffic stop at U.S. Highway 6 and Evergreen Road in Summit County.
The deputy that initiated the stop thought the driver might be wanted on an outstanding warrant. The deputy therefore called for backup after stopping the vehicle.
While en route to the location, backup officers discovered from dispatch that the driver had an active warrant for failure to appear in court for a traffic violation. The warrant, which included a $500 cash or surety bond, was issued out of the Summit County combined courts for failure to provide proof of insurance, driver’s license and driving without license plates.
The driver requested to have her passenger drive the car home, reports stated. Per the driver’s request, the vehicle was relinquished to the passenger without an inventory search being conducted.
The driver was subsequently placed into custody and transported to the Summit County jail on suspicion of failure to appear.
