From Local Sources
JASPER — Police took a man into custody Wednesday evening after responding to the report of a disturbance at a north-side business location.
The Jasper Police Department was called at 7:39 p.m. after Nicholas J. Brewster, 29, 4455 Rhine Strasse, Jasper, had been told to leave a restaurant in the 3600 block of Newton Street for reportedly being intoxicated and causing a disturbance. Brewster had driven from the scene in a Ford Explorer prior to the arrival of police but he was located still in the driver’s seat a short time later in the 4400 block of Rhine Strasse.
Police who reported a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Brewster said he refused chemical testing.
After being medically cleared at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, Brewster was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:48 p.m. on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of operating while intoxicated (test refusal) and misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Police said the preliminary impaired driving charge was elevated to a felony because of a prior conviction for the offense within the last five years.
