Obstructed plate brings OWI arrestDecember 24, 2018
From Local Sources
JASPER — An obstructed license plate led to an impaired driving arrest early Sunday.
A Jasper Police Department officer stopped a 2003 Chevrolet S-10 driven by Jonathan J. Redfern, 47, 18720 N. Spencer County Road 700E, Dale, at 12:30 a.m. at Third Avenue and Jackson Street because the truck’s license plate was obstructed.
The officer reported detecting the odor of alcoholic beverages on Redfern’s breath when speaking with him. He also had slurred speech and poor manual dexterity, according to police.
After failing field sobriety testing and a portable breath test, Redfern was transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for a certified chemical test that placed his blood alcohol content at .13 percent.
Police also allege finding 4 grams of a leafy, plant-like substance that field tested positive as marijuana in the vehicle, as well as several marijuana smoking devices.
Authorities booked Redfern into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:28 a.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
