HUNTINGBURG — Huntingburg Police Department officers arrested a Spencer County man Sunday afternoon after responding to the complaint of a vehicle being driven erratically.
The 12:07 p.m. complaint said a green Chevrolet Blazer was southbound, nearing the city. An officer observed it in the 400 block of U.S. 231 and witnessed the vehicle weaving, operating left of center and, at one point, going southbound in the northbound lane.
Because of heavy traffic, the vehicle was south of the Huntingburg Airport when the traffic stop occurred.
The driver, Jack R. Huff, 42, of 105 E. Cherry St., Dale, was transported to Memorial Hospital in Jasper for a blood test.
He was arrested and lodged at the Dubois County Security Center for operating while under the influence of a controlled substance and driving while suspended. He was also cited for driving left of center.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department assisted.
