From Local Sources
JASPER — Authorities accused a Jasper man of impaired driving, drug possession and obstruction of justice after a Wednesday night traffic stop.
A Jasper Police Department officer stopped a southbound 2007 Chrysler Sebring after having observed it go left of center multiple times and fail to stop at Third and Newton streets.
The car was driven by John P. Kendall, 54, 460 Riverside Drive, Jasper, according to police.
During the traffic stop, police said, Jasper K-9 Ares indicated on the Chrysler’s driver door. Officers report locating a pill believed to be a Schedule II controlled substance.
Police say Kendall refused to complete field sobriety testing. He also would not allow chemical testing for impairment to take place, even after police sought and obtained a search warrant for a blood and urine sample.
Authorities booked Kendall into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:46 a.m. today on preliminary charges that included Level 6 felony counts of obstruction of justice and possession of a narcotic drug, plus a misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated (test refusal).
