Arrested was 41 year old Mitchell Dale Mullins of 5567 Ross Road Rockford, Ohio. Mullins is currently charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated (OVI), Domestic Violence, Resisting Arrest and Stop Sign Violation. This case will be sent to the Mercer County Prosecutors Office for review of additional charges. Mullins does have prior Domestic Violence convictions.
On May 29th, 2017 deputies from the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office and officers from Coldwater, St. Henry and Celina Police Departments attempted to stop Mullins’ car on St Rte. 703 near Its It. The deputies were attempting to stop Mullins for a domestic violence incident that had occurred earlier in the evening.
The investigation found that Mullins had rammed his 2000 Lincoln car into the wall at a local bar and left the scene. The same location that the earlier domestic incident had taken place. Mullins then was involved in another crash at Kozy Kampground prior to the deputies / officers coming in contact with him. Mullins had sustained heavy damage to his vehicle and was driving on three (3) tires.
Mullins was losing parts off of his vehicle as he was driving. It was reported that speeds never exceed 15 mile per hour. The Celina PD did use “Stop Sticks” on the suspects’ vehicle on US 127 and Monroe Road. The vehicle came to a stop in a private drive at that intersection. Mullins was on his cell phone when he stopped. Mullins stripped down to the point that he was wearing no clothing.
Mullins was taken into custody, but was able to slip out of his cuffs. When deputies and Officers tried to re cuff him, he resisted and was tazed. Mullins was later transported to Mercer Health for medical clearance prior to being transported to the Mercer County Adult Detention Facility, where he is being held on a $750,000.00 bond (subject to 10%) by Celina Municipal Court Judge Scheer.
