From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A Huntingburg man was jailed on multiple preliminary charges after coming into contact with police early Saturday.
A Huntingburg Police Department officer who knew from previous contacts that Jean W. Amazan, 27, 502 N. Geiger St., Huntingburg, was classified as a habitual traffic violator made contact with him at 4:02 a.m. when observing Amazan in a Dodge Charger at a Huntingburg gas station.
Police said Amazan had a juvenile female with him and showed signs of impairment. A loaded 9 mm pistol was also located in the car’s center console.
Authorities said Amazan’s blood alcohol content registered .15% on a portable breath test but he refused sobriety testing and certified BAC testing later at the Huntingburg Police Station.
Amazan was booked into the Dubois County Security Center on preliminary charges of Level 5 felony carrying a handgun without a license, Level 6 felony driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator and operating while intoxicated with a minor passenger and misdemeanor operating while intoxicated (test refusal and endangerment).
Police said Amazan was also wanted on an active Knox County warrant.
