February 24, 2017
On Saturday, February 18, at approximately 4:55 pm, a 2014 Infiniti QX60 operated by Jennifer McDevitt, age 49, of Clinton Township, was stopped on Route 31 South at the intersection with Allerton Road when it was struck from behind by a 2004 Nissan Titan operated by Thomas Volkmann Jr., age 27, of Frenchtown. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and both had to be towed from the roadway. While speaking with Mr. Volkmann, the investigating officer detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and soon determined that he was intoxicated. Mr. Volkmann was arrested and later provided samples of his breath for chemical testing to determine the content of alcohol in his blood. Mr. Volkmann was charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Careless Driving before being released to a responsible adult.
