WEST BADEN — Police arrested a Jasper woman after a Monday morning traffic stop in Orange County.
The West Baden Springs Police Department received a report of a possibly impaired driver in a white Dodge Charger at 5:02 a.m., according to court documents. A caller said the suspect vehicle had stopped in the roadway three times and then started moving again.
When the 2010 Dodge Charger driven by Tiffany M. Stewart, 27, 401 Clay St., Jasper, pulled into an auto parts store’s lot, an officer pulled in behind it.
Police said Stewart showed signs of impairment, failed field sobriety testing and was found to have a controlled substance in her system during testing at Indiana University Health Paoli Hospital. Several loose pills were found during a vehicle search, including at least one matching a prescription in Stewart’s name, according to a case report.
Stewart was booked into the Orange County Jail and was later charged in Orange Superior Court with Level 6 felony operating while intoxicated (controlled substance) with prior and misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.
The French Lick Police Department assisted.
