Newell woman arrested while trying to flee SL police

Monday, January 8, 2001

Storm Lake Police officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 200 block of Flindt Drive shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The vehicle did not stop and proceeded east on East Lakeshore Drive until it reached the intersection of East Lakeshore Drive and Radio Road.

When police arrived, they noticed the female driver, identified as Lamoon Marlatt, 51, of Newell, was very agitated and attempted to exit her vehicle. After refusing to obey the officer's instructions to remain in the vehicle, Marlatt was arrested.

She was charged with Interference With Officials Acts and Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle, both simple misdemeanors.

Marlatt was processed and released pending a court date.
