From Local Sources
JASPER — Police accused a Daviess County man of impaired driving after a Friday afternoon fender-bender in the Rural King parking lot.
David K. Davis, 52, Washington, was backing a 2009 Ford Escape in the parking lot at 1920 Lube Way at the time of the 3:37 p.m. mishap, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police said the Davis Escape backed into a 2008 Toyota Prius driven by Constance Hall, 66, Dubois.
Damage from the accident was estimated at $700 to the Davis Escape and $1,500 to the Hall Prius.
During the investigation, police said, Davis showed signs of impairment and, after field sobriety testing, it was determined he was operating while intoxicated.
Davis was transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center but, police said, he refused the testing even after a search warrant was sought and obtained. Police said Davis had also complained of knee pain after the accident but refused EMS.
Authorities booked Davis into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:35 p.m. on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony obstruction of justice and operating while intoxicated (prior) and misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated (test refusal) and possession of marijuana (prior). Davis posted bond Saturday evening.
