A Plover man who appeared in a Portage County Court on Tuesday was arrested a second time on July 21, making two court appearances in as many days.
Nicholas Mains, 27, was scheduled on July 21 for a plea agreement on felony charges of possession of THC, and misdemeanor charges of driving without a license and obstructing an officer. He was free on a $1,000 signature bond pending a new court date when he was arrested again around 10:20 PM that day.
Court records show deputies responded to a report of a one-vehicle accident on Hwy 54 near Hwy J in the Town of Buena Vista. Witnesses said the vehicle had flipped and the driver was bleeding from facial injuries and walking down Hwy 54.
Deputies made contact with a male subject who was identified as Mains. Deputies discovered a small baggie with material that tested positive for THC as Mains was being transported for medical treatment.
Mains was then arrested and taken to the Portage County Jail.
According to Assistant District Attorney David Knaapen, Mains will be charged with possession of THC and with bail jumping.
Judge Richard Wright ordered a $400 cash bond. Mains is due back in court on August 10.
