Two drunk drivers ordered to hold sign in Ashtabula

Two suspects were ordered to hold DUI signs in Ashtabula, Ohio.

ASHTABULA, Ohio (WKBN) – A judge in Ashtabula has sentenced two repeat drunk driving offenders to some embarrassment this Fourth of July weekend.

Marcus Perry, 54, of Ashtabula, and Jeffrey Yenyo, 48, of Geneva, were ordered to hold signs about drinking and driving.

The two were stationed at Bridge Street and Lake Avenue.

Police around the state are cracking down on dangerous driving this weekend, and these men were meant to be an example of what happens when you make bad decisions

But, not everyone agreed with the creative sentences, including a mother and daughter who passed by.

“I don’t think the sign is severe enough, but I think it is good that you are punishing them somewhat,” said Rayzhawna Murray.

I do think it is appropriate because they can see how many lives out here that they could have hurt or possibly killed from the neglect of drinking and driving,” said Chaliza Holmes.

Court records show Perry has had two DUIs. Yenyo has had seven.

Both men will return to their corners Saturday night.
