From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police arrested a motorist found sleeping in a running truck Friday and accused him of impaired driving.
The Huntingburg Police Department was dispatched to the 600 block of Railroad Avenue at 12:06 p.m. when it was reported that a red truck was blocking the roadway. The report indicated the driver appeared to have been sleeping in the truck for approximately an hour, according to police.
Officers located a red 2000 Ford Ranger with Carl F. Young, 53, 601 E. First St., Huntingburg, sleeping behind the steering wheel of the running truck.
Police said Young, who was described as having badly slurred speech and unsteady balance, refused chemical testing, so authorities sought and obtained a warrant for blood and urine testing.
At Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, police said, Young submitted to a blood test but refused a urine test.
Authorities booked Young into the Dubois County Security Center at 5:34 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated (test refusal).
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office and a KARS wrecker assisted.
