Nicole Marie Trotter, from Harrison, plead guilty on February 19, 2020, to Flee and Elude 3rd degree, Police Officer – Resist and Obstruct (two counts), and Unlawful Driving Away Motor Vehicle, as a habitual 4th offender. She also plead guilty to a probation violation in a 2017 case.

The Clare County Sheriff’s Department handled the investigations.
