From Local Sources
JASPER — Police placed a man under arrest this morning after determining he was classified as a habitual traffic violator.
The incident began at 8 a.m. when a Jasper Police Department officer observed a southbound 2004 Buick Rendezvous on Newton Street near 35th Street. The officer was behind the SUV when it abruptly turned eastbound on 35th Street.
After the driver was identified as Edward D. Goodman, 38, 2200 N. Mill St., Jasper, who is classified as a habitual traffic violator, the officer turned around and located the Buick on 34th Street, where Goodman was waiting to turn south back onto Newton Street.
Police said the Buick cut across Newton Street by failing to yield to northbound and southbound vehicles. The officer followed onto 33rd Street where the Buick abruptly stopped.
Goodman exited the vehicle and began walking toward the residence at 3303 Newton St., police said. He initially failed to stop when ordered to do so but, after repeated commands, was taken into custody, police reported.
Authorities booked Goodman into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:38 a.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator and a preliminary misdemeanor count of resisting law enforcement.
