Driver charged in leaving-the-scene accidentNovember 8, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Police have charged a Jasper man in connection with a leaving-the-scene accident that occurred south of Jasper the morning of Friday, Nov. 1.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office was called at 4:53 a.m. to the accident in the 2600 block of Meridian Road, south of the State Road 162 bypass.
The investigation led to the arrest of Bruce J. Dotterweich, 45, 1444 Main St., Jasper, who is alleged to have been driving the 2002 Ford Explorer involved in the incident.
The sheriff’s office reported Dotterweich exhibited multiple signs of impairment but refused chemical testing to establish his blood alcohol content.
Dotterweich, who posted bond during the weekend of his arrest, was charged in Dubois Superior Court with misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated (test refusal) and leaving the scene of an accident.
During an initial hearing Thursday, the court granted Dotterweich’s request for pauper counsel, entered a preliminary plea of not guilty on his behalf and set his next court appearance for Dec. 12.
