On November 17, 2019 at approximately 1:34 A.M., the Plainfield Police Department arrested 55 year old Damian Gingras, of Central Village.

While conducting traffic enforcement in the area of School Street in Central Village an Officer observed a red Mustang traveling westbound on School Street with no front registration plate displayed. The operator of the vehicle was later identified as Gingras.

The Officer attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop at which time Gingras failed to obey the signal of the Officer’s lights and siren and continued westbound on School Street prior to turning into his residence on Pickett Road in Central Village.

Upon approaching the vehicle the operator was identified as Gingras. Through investigation it was determined that Gingras vehicle’s registration was cancelled and he failed to have an ignition interlock device installed which is a requirement for Gingras to operate a motor vehicle.

Based off the Officers observations Gingras was asked to exit the vehicle and perform the field sobriety test which he refused.

Gingras was subsequently placed under arrest and transported back to the Plainfield Police Department to be processed. Once at the Plainfield Police Department Gingras refused further testing and was charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs, Operating an Unregistered Motor Vehicle, Avoidance of the Ignition Interlock Device, Improper Display of Plates, and Failure to Obey the Signal of an Officer.

Gingras was released on a $5000.00 bond and is scheduled to appear at the Danielson Superior Court, on December 2, 2019.
