HOLLAND — Indiana State Police arrested William J. Beier, 53, of 854 W. 1100S, Ferdinand, at 8:51 p.m. Monday and charged him with drunken driving (blood alcohol content .08 percent).
Authorities said Beier was the driver of a 2000 Chevrolet pickup truck that crashed on Holland Road East, east of State Road 161.

Once he was medically cleared, authorities booked Beier into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:37 p.m.
