From Local Sources
BIRDSEYE — Authorities charged a Birdseye man with a driving offense last week.
Obadiah J. Cooper, 29, 3893 S. Kings Ridge Road, Birdseye, was stopped driving a Ford truck Dec. 19 in Birdseye by the Birdseye town marshal because the truck’s tag was expired, according to charging documents.
During the stop, Cooper’s driver’s license was found to be expired and he had a previous conviction for driving while suspended. He was told he would be cited into court and the truck was towed by a Berg’s Garage wrecker.
On Tuesday, authorities filed a misdemeanor count of driving while suspended (prior) in Dubois Superior Court. Cooper is scheduled to be in court for an initial hearing Jan. 27.
