From Local Sources
IRELAND — Police allege a motorist in a Saturday night accident north of Ireland was driving while intoxicated.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office responded at 10:30 p.m. to the report of an injury accident at the sharp curve at county roads 500W and 400N.
The driver of the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado involved in the single-vehicle accident, Bradley A. Beckman, 42, 1334 E. Jasper-Dubois Road, Jasper, suffered some cuts and scrapes and initially refused to submit to a blood alcohol screen, according to the sheriff’s office.
A Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services ambulance transported Beckman to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for treatment. Once police obtained a warrant, according to the sheriff’s office, Beckman agreed to a blood draw that placed his blood alcohol content at .25%, according to the sheriff’s office.
Authorities booked Beckman into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:50 a.m. Monday on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of operating while intoxicated (prior) and a misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated (test refusal). Beckman posted bond Monday evening.
The Ireland Volunteer Fire Department and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted at the accident scene.
