The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office has reported the arrest of a 20-year-old Clyde man following an investigation into a vehicle and traffic complaint that occurred in the Town of Palmyra.

Blade D. Case, of Clyde, was arrested for multiple charges, including failure to keep right, moving from lane unsafely, speed unreasonable/not prudent, possession of open alcohol container in a vehicle, driving while intoxicated common law, and operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol under the age of 21.


According to reports, the charges stem from an investigation into a vehicle and traffic complaint in the Town of Palmyra. It is alleged that Case was operating his vehicle eastbound on Newark Marion Road when he lost control of his vehicle, nearly colliding with a marked Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle being operated by a Deputy traveling westbound, before traveling off the roadway.


Upon further investigation, Case participated in standardized field sobriety testing, which he failed, leading to his arrest. He was then transported to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, where he submitted to a chemical test that yielded a .07% BAC. Case was subsequently transported to the Wayne County Jail for processing before being released on tickets.

Case is scheduled to appear in the Town of Palmyra Court at a later date to answer to the charges.
