Accused wrong-way-driver arrested for alleged 2nd offense

November 29, 2017

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A woman charged with eluding police while allegedly driving on the wrong side of Interstate 90 is back in jail after allegedly committing the same offense again this month.

The Rapid City Journal reports that 52-year-old Marguerite Martin was on release from jail to undergo mental health treatment when she was arrested on Nov. 15.

Martin has pending charges of aggravated eluding and driving on the wrong side of the road in an alleged Jan. 20 incident. Judge Robert Mandel in October found her incompetent to stand trial and ordered her released from jail so she could receive mental health treatment before her criminal case continues.

The treatment is pending, and Mandel on Monday said he wasn’t comfortable releasing Martin back into the community. She’s being held without bond.
