MILLEDGEVILLE — The following is information compiled from public records taken from reports of the Milledgeville Police Department and the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office. It is our policy to not disclose the names of victims. These reports do not reflect guilt or innocence. An “arrest” does not always indicate incarceration. The charges filed are noted in the narrative.

Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office

The passenger was charged with two counts of obstruction of an officer and giving a false name and date of birth to law enforcement. The driver was issued a citation for failure to maintain lane, open container of alcohol while operating a vehicle, and safety restraint violation.
