Lincoln Police Department reports for Thursday, Sept. 3

Vehicle damage on Aug. 29 at noon; Illinois 10-121, 78 feet west of North College Street


--Stephen E. Sherrer, 36-year-old male, Lincoln; 2004 Dodge Durango SLT

Sherrer said he had just noticed damage to his vehicle on the front passenger-side quarter panel. He said the damage had to have occurred while his vehicle was parked in the Walgreens parking lot. He said he was in the store for about half an hour and the vehicle was parked near the building. There was no paint transfer.


Accident on Aug. 31 at 7:54 a.m.; Illinois 10-121 at Keokuk Street

--Mark W. Stoltzenburg, 28-year-old male, Lincoln; 1996 Chevrolet Conventional Cab 4x2

--Rita L. Coleman, female, 44, of Clinton; 2000 International bus

Stoltzenburg was stopped behind Coleman at a stop sign on Route 10 East. Coleman pulled from the sign into the intersection to make a left turn onto Keokuk Street from Route 10, then slammed on the brakes to avoid a crash with another vehicle. She said that she did not see the car coming before she pulled from the stop sign.

Stoltzenburg saw that Coleman had pulled from the stop sign but did not see that she had slammed on the brakes, as he was looking left so that he could make a right turn onto Keokuk Street. Stoltzenburg attempted to make his turn and hit the rear of Coleman's vehicle.

Multiple passengers from Coleman's vehicle were taken by either their parents or Logan County Paramedics to Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital.



  • Logan, Chris D., 28-year-old male, Lincoln; arrested Sept. 12 at his residence; Class A misdemeanor -- domestic battery

  • Slater, Brett A., 26-year-old male, Lincoln; arrested Sept. 2 at his residence; failure to appear -- three warrants, Tazewell and Fulton County


The public is reminded that anyone is presumed innocent until charges are proven in a court of law.
