From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A Ferdinand man was placed into custody after a Friday night traffic stop along a county road southeast of Huntingburg.
A Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy stopped a 1994 Ford truck driven by Michael J. Petry, 56, 415 Alabama St., Ferdinand, at 8:52 p.m. on Ferdinand Road Northwest near County Road 700S.
The traffic stop was initiated after the deputy noticed while in Huntingburg that Petry’s truck, which appeared to be speeding, was pulling a trailer that had no working lights.
While catching up to the truck, the deputy reported that the Ford and the trailer were all over the roadway.
Petry’s blood alcohol content later tested .19 percent after a blood draw at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, according to the sheriff’s department.
Authorities booked Petry into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:30 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated. He posted bond Saturday.
