Sault man and his two buddies busted for OUIL, drugs and driving 104 mph on I-75

CHEBOYGAN COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) — Three men were arrested after traveling at 104 mph on I-75 while in possession of controlled substances, according to Michigan State Police.

At 3:17 p.m. on Nov. 1, an MSP trooper stopped a vehicle traveling northbound on I-75 near M-68 Highway, for speeding at 104 mph in a 75-mph zone, MSP said. 

“As the vehicle began to stop, the driver was seen climbing into the rear passenger seat and the front seat passenger moved to the driver’s seat,” MSP said. “The vehicle then came to a complete stop.”

According to MSP, the driver was Shawn Wilson, 32, from Newport and the passenger who moved to the driver’s seat was Christopher Meade, 28, from Sault Ste Marie. 

“Meade appeared to be under the influence and was placed under arrest after failing sobriety tests,” MSP said. “Wilson, the original driver, did not have a valid driver’s license and during a search of the vehicle the trooper located multiple syringes and empty pill bottles.”

All three men were placed under arrest and lodged in the Cheboygan County Jail. 

“During the booking process, Wilson was found to have baggies containing suspected fentanyl hidden inside his sock,” MSP said

Wilson given a $250,000 bond, while Meade and Bradley Phillips, 28, from Detroit both received bonds worth $10,000.
