BIRDSEYE — Police accused a man of impaired driving after a Saturday afternoon traffic stop in Birdseye.
A Dubois County Sheriff’s Office deputy stopped a 2000 Chevrolet truck driven by Lee J. Mullen, 55, 5846 S. Kyana Road, Birdseye, at 2:14 p.m. at Third Street and State Road 145 because Mullen allegedly failed to signal a turn.
Police say an investigation determined the truck had an inoperable taillight and turn signal.
A deputy who noted signs of impairment and an open container of beer in the truck said Mullen’s blood alcohol content tested .206% at the Jasper Police Station.
Authorities booked Mullen into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:54 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated. Mullen posted bond early Sunday morning.
