From Local Sources
JASPER — An investigation into a Friday afternoon leaving-the-scene accident ended with an arrest.
Jasper Police Department officers called to the 3700 block of North Portersville Road at 4:35 p.m. were told by a witness that an SUV with significant right rear quarter panel damage had left northbound after striking and damaging a mailbox.
Police then located a damaged Chevrolet TrailBlazer at the Dubois Apartments, 426 W. 43rd St., and allegedly determined complex resident William H. Johnson Jr., 55, had been driving.
Johnson’s blood alcohol content later tested .14% during testing at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
Authorities booked Johnson into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:18 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated, failure to stop after an accident and driving while suspended (prior). He was released on his own recognizance Saturday morning.
