Plymouth Man Accused of Ramming Wife’s SUV in Warsaw

July 31, 2012

  08/01/12 27 year old Siamuel A. Stemen of Plymouth is facing multiple felony charges stemming from an incident Friday evening in Warsaw.

Warsaw Police say Stemen is accused of deliberately ramming his wife’s SUV on east Market Street in Warsaw several times event though there is a protective order in place against him.

His wife, Katie Anders Stemen told police she got off work about 5 p.m. and received a telephone call from her estranged husband, saying he just watched her leaving work.  In the downtown area he yelled at her and almost struck her Chevrolet Equinox.  As his wife drove down Market Street she saw her husband’s Toyota Tacoma near Bronson Street.  At that time he swerved into her SUV three times, hitting it each time before forcing it into a yard.

The police report indicates that the wife called and was speaking with police on her cell phone when Si Stemen called her.  Police answered the call and told him he needed to go to the Warsaw Police Department and make a statement on the incident. He told police he had called the wrong number.

Warsaw police were able to track Mr. Stemen’s whereabouts through his cell phone and found he was driving through Elkhart County.

Siamuel Stemen was later stopped by Edwardsburg, Michigan police after attempting to cut his wrists and sending a photo of it to his wife.  He as intoxicated and transported to a hospital in Dowagiac where he was treated for the injuries and when released to the Cass County Jail in Michigan.

Stemen is being held on a temporary felony warrant in Michigan and Warsaw police are working with the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office filing felony charges for domestic battery, criminal recklessness with a motor vehicle, criminal stalking, invasion of privacy, criminal mischief and resisting law enforcement.

    Seems like Siamuel Stemen needs professional help. Shouldn’t he have been mandated to attend Anger Management counseling or at the very least, to seek help from a mental health professional? I’m not sure if putting him in jail for an extended period would change his behavior. (although it would protect the wife, temporarily)

    That poor woman. How traumatic. Given the impotency of the legal system to protect her, I don’t know how she could cope. No wonder woman of spousal abuse try to disappear. What choice are they really given?

    The system is obviously broken. … Someone, like the judge who’s hoping to get reelected, should really try to focus on fixing it. … that would be worth MY vote.

    Thank you for at least trying, corporal. I don’t think it’s the law enforcement or the prosecutor’s office that it is at fault. I lay the blame square on the judges. One judge that I saw speak said that if he gave longer sentences, he’d never be elected again. I’m still trying to figure out who he considers his constituents to be.
