A Genoa, Michigan Township man who ran over a State Police sergeant with a golf cart earlier this summer has entered a plea in the case. On June 14th, Troopers from the Michigan State Police Brighton Post noticed a golf cart speeding down **** Lake Road near Chilson Road and gave chase. When 43-year old Scott Cote went through a private yard, Sergeant “Lew” Taylor chased him on foot but was eventually run over. Taylor, who was not injured, caught up with the golf cart and jumped on the back before Cote finally stopped. He told police he had six beers and was heading to his home after visiting a friend. Cote pleaded no contest Monday to charges of operating under the influence third offense; possession of suspected marijuana, resisting and obstructing a police officer, driving on a suspended license and being a habitual offender. A no contest plea isn’t considered an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing purposes. The court took the plea under advisement, meaning Cote can withdraw it at his September 25th sentencing. He faces more than seven years in prison.

A Genoa Township man who ran over a State Police sergeant with a golf cart earlier this year has been sentenced. 43-year old Scott Cote was arrested June 14th after a run-in with State Police. Troopers noticed a golf cart speeding down **** Lake Road and gave chase. Sergeant “Lew” Taylor eventually left his patrol unit and chased him on foot but was run over. Taylor, who was not injured, caught up with the golf cart and jumped on the back before Cote finally stopped. Cote, who pleaded no contest in August to charges of resisting and obstructing a police officer, operating under the influence third offense and possession of suspected marijuana, was sentenced to 120 days in jail Thursday and three years probation. He had faced more than seven years in prison.
