Ovid man arrested for DWI after passenger calls 911

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of an Ovid man following an incident on Friday, December 15 around 11 p.m.

According to a news release, the 911 center received a call for a report of a dispute at a residence in the town of Ovid. Dispatchers advised responding deputies that the caller had an open cell phone line in a motor vehicle to update location.


Deputies then located the vehicle in question and performed a traffic stop to ensure safety of the caller, who was apparently not the driver.

As result of the incident, Kurt Minges, 57, was arrested for DWI and driving with a BAC over 0.08%.

Those charges will be answered at a later date. There were no charges related to the victim who called 911 reported by deputies.
