From Local Sources
JASPER — Authorities accused a Jasper man of impaired driving, obstruction of justice and drug-related counts Sunday evening.
A Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy made contact with a 2004 Acura MDX driven by Matt B. Leinenbach, 45, 814 S. 330E, at 6:49 p.m. after observing the vehicle going left of center — including going completely into the opposite lane of travel in a curve — on County Road 330E near Greener Road.
The sheriff’s department said Leinenbach jumped out of his SUV and seemed very nervous and agitated. Further investigation detected other signs of impairment as well as a small bag with a crystalline substance in it that was in Leinenbach’s pocket. A clear pipe with burnt residue was also located in the vehicle, according to the sheriff’s department.
A deputy said Leinenbach refused chemical testing, even after a warrant was sought and granted ordering blood and urine sampling at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
Authorities booked Leinenbach into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:37 p.m. on preliminary Level 6 felony counts of possession of methamphetamine and obstruction of justice, plus preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated (test refusal) and possession of paraphernalia.
