Man faces deportation after OVI stop

Published: Sat, June 7, 2014 @ 12:02 a.m.

Staff report


The arrest of a man on suspicion of operating a vehicle while impaired has led to his likely deportation to Mexico.

Township police said Marco Cortez Maldonado of Alabama is charged with OVI, driving without a license and having expired plates, all misdemeanor offenses.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement later confirmed Maldonado’s visa had expired, and he had re-entered the country illegally. ICE said this would require his deportation to Mexico, according to a police report.

Authorities responded to a Shell gas station at 1510 Boardman-Canfield Road for a possible intoxicated driver at 12:20 a.m. Friday.

The driver had been seen speeding up and slowing down, swerving and struck a curb twice while making a U-turn.

Authorities found a man slumped over the wheel of a truck while it was still running. The driver was identified as Maldonado. Police said he performed poorly on three sobriety tests and was arrested.

During their investigation, it was revealed Maldonado had never had a U.S. license, and his work visa had expired. He registered a .173 alcohol level — more than twice the legal limit for intoxication — on a breath test performed at 2:01 a.m.

ICE requested he be housed at Mahoning County jail. He has a hearing in Mahoning County Area Court at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. His bond is set at $650 cash.
