At approximately 9:35 a.m., Monday, a Mexico Public Safety Officer attempted to stop a vehicle near the intersection of South Western and Hisey due to traffic violations and the driver possibly having outstanding arrest warrants. According to a news release from MPSD, the driver ran from the vehicle and was arrested approximately two blocks away by other officers.

James A Mayweather Jr., 32, of Mexico, was processed at MSPD and later taken to the Audrain County Jail for three outstanding arrest warrants and the additional charges of driving while license suspended and resisting arrest. There were no injuries as a result of the arrest.

Citizens are reminded that people arrested/charged with a crime are simply accused of a crime and are to be considered innocent until proven guilty.
