JASPER — A Jasper Police Department officer patrolling Thursday night as part of Operation Pull Over arrested a motorist and accused him of impaired driving and being a habitual traffic violator.
The officer observed a Ford Taurus northbound on Mill Street from Ninth Street at 10:13 p.m., ran the license plate and learned the vehicle’s registration was expired.
During the stop, the officer confirmed the driver, Shawn M. Davis, 33, 489 Rumbach Ave., Jasper, was classified as a habitual traffic violator.
Davis reportedly exhibited signs of impairment, failed field sobriety testing and had a blood alcohol content that tested .099% in a certified test at the Jasper Police Station.
Authorities booked Davis into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:28 a.m. today on preliminary charges that included Level 6 felony driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator and misdemeanor operating while intoxicated.
Operation Pull Over involves a crackdown on impaired drivers by area law enforcement organizations in conjunction with the Labor Day holiday.
