On 9/9/18 Mt. Carmel Police arrested Nicole I. Kimpling, age 30, and Hugh B. Beath, age 33, both of Mount Carmel following a traffic stop in the 800 block of North Market Street. The arresting officer observed Kimpling operating a black Volkswagen and knew her to have a suspended Illinois Driver’s License. Kimpling was stopped and placed under arrest at this time. During the arrest Kimpling’s passenger, Hugh Beath, continually interfered with the officers attempting to compete the arrest of Kimpling. Beath was eventually arrested for Obstructing a Peace Officer as he refused to follow the officer’s commands to step away from the arrest. Officers also located un-prescribed Clonazepam, a controlled substance, in Kimpling’s property. Both were transported to the Wabash County Jail where they were issued their charges. Beath was later released on a $150 cash bond. Kimpling, who received an additional charge for Possession of a Controlled Substance, along with Driving While License Suspended, was held pending a bond setting by a judge.
