Plain Township Trustee Scott Haws was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs early Saturday.
Plain Township Trustee Scott M. Haws was charged early Saturday morning with operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a first-degree misdemeanor, police and court records say.
A North Canton police officer said in his report that he spotted Haws, 35, of Northview Avenue NE, who was driving a silver Ford vehicle, committing a lane violation near Maple Street E and Market Avenue N around 12:05 a.m.
The officer said after speaking with Haws, he determined the trustee was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The police report indicated that results are pending the results of a urine test.
A message seeking comment was left on Haws’ voice mail Monday night.
Haws’ arraignment was scheduled in Canton Municipal Court at 9 a.m. Friday. He also was charged with a lane violation misdemeanor.
A police report said the officer issued Haws with a court summons, arranged for Haws’ car to be towed and released him at 1:22 a.m. to the custody of someone who apparently was Haws’ friend.
