FERDINAND — A Ferdinand man pleaded guilty to felony impaired driving Thursday, a day after being arrested and accused of the offense in Ferdinand.
The Ferdinand Police Department was notified at 12:38 p.m. Wednesday of a southbound Kia Optima that was all over the roadway on State Road 162 south of County Road 825S north of Ferdinand.
The complainant was someone reporting being tailgated by the Kia.
Ferdinand police observed the car swerving over the double-yellow as it came into town and traveling at a high rate of speed. A traffic stop was conducted south of 23rd Street.
Police said the driver, Andrew P. McKenzie, 31, 2625 Leaf Drive, Ferdinand, failed field sobriety testing and had a blood alcohol content that tested .214 percent at the Jasper Police Station.
He was charged with a Level 6 felony count of drunken driving because of a previous conviction for impaired driving within the last five years.
McKenzie was lodged in the Dubois County Security Center on Wednesday and appeared in Dubois Superior Court on Thursday. The court accepted his guilty plea and ordered that he be held in the security center pending a sentencing scheduled for Aug. 8.
