From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police accused a Crawford County man of public intoxication after encountering him walking on a highway east of Huntingburg late Tuesday night.
A Dubois County Sheriff’s Office deputy was westbound on State Road 64, traveling to assist another officer, when the 11:34 p.m. incident occurred just west of Patoka Road.
The deputy said he had to swerve into the eastbound lane because Lance L. Persinger, 25, Taswell, was walking in the middle of the westbound lane. Persinger was not wearing reflective clothing and was clad in jeans and a hoodie in the rainy, chilly weather, according to police.
Persinger, who exhibited signs of intoxication, indicated he was in the process of walking from a Huntingburg bar to his Taswell home, according to the sheriff’s office.
Authorities booked Persinger into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:21 a.m. today on a preliminary misdemeanor count of public intoxication.
