From Local Sources
IRELAND — A Sunday night report of erratic driving ended in arrest.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department was told at 11:40 p.m. that a 2006 Jeep Commander was reported swerving and traveling at 20 mph under the posted limit on State Road 56 while eastbound in the Ireland area.
A deputy got behind the SUV and made contact with the driver, Ryan M. King, 37, 2200 Mill St., Jasper, on Hoffman Road in Jasper after King had allegedly driven over the centerline and turned without signaling twice.
Authorities said King failed field sobriety testing. The deputy reported also smelling the odor of marijuana during the stop.
King allegedly had a blood alcohol content of .058 percent and had presumptive positive test results for marijuana and Suboxone in his system when tested at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
A search of the vehicle also located a black pipe with suspected marijuana residue and a container with suspected marijuana residue, according to authorities.
King was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:41 a.m. today on preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated and possession of paraphernalia.
