HUNTINGBURG — Police accused a Daviess County motorist of felony impaired driving after responding to a Friday night mishap along a county road southwest of Huntingburg.
Eric R. Houchin, 38, Washington, is alleged to have driven his 2006 Dodge Dakota pickup truck into a ditch near Old Road 64 and Holland Road Northeast at 9:14 p.m.
There was minor damage to the truck, police said.
Houchin’s blood alcohol content allegedly tested .23 percent after a blood draw at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
Authorities booked Houchin into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:57 p.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of operating while intoxicated. Police said the preliminary impaired driving charge was elevated to a felony because of a prior conviction for the offense within the last five years.
