Sheriff Jeff Sandy announced Wednesday night that a Wood County citizen reviewed the WTAP’s Mid-Ohio Valley's Most Wanted website and called him.
The citizen noticed that Mark Still was wanted by the Parkersburg Police Department for failure to appear for his arraignment on DUI charges and supplied the department with information on Still's whereabouts.
At approximately 10:00PM, Sergeant Allen, and Deputies of the Wood County Sheriff’s Office arrested Still without incident.
Sheriff Sandy advised Parkersburg Police Chief Gerald Board at 10:40PM of the arrest.
Chief Board was very appreciative of the arrest and the success of the WTAP’s Mid Ohio Valley Most Wanted.
In this week's edition of Mid-Ohio Valley's Most Wanted we have for you a Parkersburg man who is now running from police, after being arrested and charged with a DUI.
Over the past six years, Mark Still, has been pulled over and charged with driving under the influence on 3 different occasions.
On June 20, 2005, his latest offense, a Parkersburg Police Patrolman saw Still speeding on Park Avenue in Parkersburg and then pulled him over.
The Patrolman says he smelled an odor of alcohol coming from the car and arrested Still.
Captain Delmas Barker with the Parkersburg Police Department says the most important thing is keeping Still from driving drunk in the future.
"He committed a crime, DUI is a pretty serious crime, the public takes great offense to people out here drinking and driving and we try our best to arrest and then prosecute DUI's," says Captain Barker, Parkersburg Police.
Now police are continuing to look for Mark Still because on this particular offense, he never showed up for his arraignment in circuit court.
Police are unsure why still never showed up for court, but he does face one to three years behind bars for this charge.
Captain Barker believes still could be in the Parkersburg area.
He's asking you to call the Parkersburg Police Department if you see him or have any information regarding the incident at 304-424-8444.
