Good Facing Multiple Charges, Judge Sets Bail

Ohio County Magistrate Harry Radcliffe on Saturday set bond at $10,500 for Edward Mark Good, of Shadyside, who is facing charges of DUI, speeding, driving left of center, obstructing an officer and battery on an officer.

A State Police report said troopers spotted a car driven by Good, 25, south on W.Va. 88 abruptly stop, then accelerate rapidly as it continued westbound on U.S. 40.

The report said police followed Good and saw his car weave to the right and then to the left across the center line.

Upon stopping the vehicle, troopers said Good smelled of alcohol and his speech was slurred.

After failing a series of field sobriety tests, police asked Good if he would submit to a breath test. The trooper then arrested Good and transported him to the Wheeling Police Department where Good reportedly became more agitated.

According to the report, Good then refused to sign an Implied Consent Statement and said he would not submit to a secondary breath test.

He also is alleged to have refused to sign the Miranda Rights portion of the paperwork.

After again handcuffing Good and walking him to the cruiser, he reportedly refused to sit down in the cruiser.

“Trooper Hoder used a pressure point under the driver’s left ear in an attempt to place the driver in the cruiser,” the report said. “The driver began to violently resist.”

The report said a second trooper tried to help Hoder place Good in the cruiser and Good tried to leave the scene before officers took him down to the ground.

They then secured his legs with a restraint strap and pushed him into the cruiser.

According to the report, Good kicked Hoder twice in his right leg before the cruiser door closed.
