DeWitt man detained at municipal courthouse for warrant out of Carroll County

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

A man with an active Carroll County warrant was recently arrested at the Marshall Municipal Courthouse, where he had an unrelated court appearance.

According to a Marshall Police Department report, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department notified MPD that Adam Michael Griffith, 37, of DeWitt, Mo., had a scheduled court appearance last week.

Two MPD officers arrived at the courthouse and made contact with Griffith, according to the report, and Griffith allegedly resisted being handcuffed.

A search of Griffith’s person revealed four .22 caliber bullets in his pocket and a fire poker tied to his right leg, according to the report. After his case was heard, officers transported Griffith to MPD where he was held and later released into the custody of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department.

Carroll County had issued the warrant based on a probation violation on an original charge of property damage, with a bond amount of $10,000 cash. According to unofficial online court documents, he had been sentenced to one-year of supervised probation in October 2017. His next hearing is scheduled Feb. 13 in Carroll County.
