From Local Sources
JASPER — Police placed a motorist into custody Thursday night after investigating the report of a possibly intoxicated driver.
The person who called the Jasper Police Department at 9:50 p.m. reported a car was traveling at 15 to 20 mph on Newton Street and had nearly struck a curb.
Police stopped a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by Maiquer A. Salvador, 30, 550 Kirkwood Drive, Jasper, at 47th and Newton streets.
An Indiana State Police trooper arrived to assist and police said Salvador, whose license was found to be suspended, proceeded to fail field sobriety testing.
A blood draw at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center allegedly placed Salvador’s blood alcohol content at .23 percent.
Authorities booked Salvador into the Dubois County Security Center on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of operating while intoxicated and a misdemeanor count of driving while suspended (prior).
Authorities said the preliminary impaired driving charge was elevated to a felony because of a prior conviction within the last five years.
