From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A Friday night report of an accident south of Huntingburg resulted in a Lake County man’s arrest.
A caller reported being passed by a speeding white van at U.S. 231 and County Road 1100S, according to Indiana State Police. The caller said the van then ran off the east side of the roadway and into a cornfield.
A nearby trooper arriving in the area notified the Huntingburg Police Department to watch for the van after spotting where the van had likely exited the cornfield and came back onto the highway.
A Huntingburg officer then stopped a 2012 Ford van driven by Roger D. White, 34, Gary, at U.S. 231 and 22nd Street on Huntingburg’s north side.
Police reported the van had a large amount of corn stalks hanging from its front and rear.
White was alleged to have had a BAC of .15 percent.
Authorities booked White into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:29 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated with a BAC of .15 percent or more, leaving the scene of a property damage accident and driving without having ever been licensed.
