Black arrested for OWI, domestic abuse and child endangerment

On Sunday, November 14, 2010, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a vehicle in the ditch in the 2500 block of Highway 12.  Upon arrival, a second call was received from the wife of the subject driving the van.  The driver, along with two young children had been dropped off at home and the driver, Brent Edwin Black, age 39, of 23908 Highway 12, Westfield, was intoxicated and had assaulted the caller and left on foot.  A search did not turn up the driver and the vehicle was towed.  A short time later, a deputy returned to the Black residence to speak with the victim who came running from the residence advising her husband had just returned home on foot and was inside.  


With the information obtained as a result of the investigation, Brent Black was taken into custody and charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (a serious misdemeanor), domestic assault 3rd offense (a felony), and 2 counts of child endangerment (an aggravated misdemeanor).
