HUNTINGBURG — A couple reported as arguing as they walked in public Tuesday night was arrested by the Huntingburg Police Department for underage drinking.
Police were notified of a possible walking domestic at 10:30 p.m. The suspects, Gabriel McNitt, 20, of 309 E. First Ave., and Cierra Castaneda, 19, of Prescott, Ariz., were located by police walking southbound on Geiger Street just south of First Avenue.
Officers learned the pair had had a verbal argument. But, while learning that, police also detected the odor of alcoholic beverages.
Police said McNitt’s blood alcohol content tested .07 percent and Castaneda’s BAC was .10 percent.
McNitt and Castaneda were taken into custody on misdemeanor counts of minor consuming.
While at the Dubois County Security Center, authorities said McNitt continually disrupted the book-in process with loud outbursts and was disrespectful to jail staff. He continued the outbursts after being warned of a possible additional charge and was then additionally charged with a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department assisted.
