On 6-1-16 at 3:15 am, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office arrested Johnathan Lawrence Wingert, age 25 of Sioux City, IA, for eluding, OWI 2nd offense, carrying concealed weapons and traffic violations. At approximately 3:15 am, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office was called to the area of C-80 and Grouse Avenue for a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, a vehicle with no tail lights and a headlight out was observed in the area on Grouse Avenue.

The vehicle continued northbound on Granite Avenue before losing control again. The vehicle entered the east ditch at Granite Avenue and 308th Street. The vehicle struck two road signs and became stuck. The accident caused approximately $5,000 damage to the defendant’s truck and the road signs. The defendant was taken into custody without further incident. The defendant was jailed at the Plymouth County Jail and bond was set at $5,000.
