From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police jailed a Vanderburgh County man on multiple preliminary charges after a Tuesday night encounter in a gas station parking lot.
The Huntingburg Police Department was called to the Huck’s Food & Fuel, 601 N. Main St., at 8:49 p.m. to the report of a possibly intoxicated driver who had pulled into the parking lot.
Police made contact with Maiquer A. Salvador, 30, Evansville, who appeared to be highly intoxicated, as well as agitated that police were speaking with him.
Salvador denied driving but, police said, witnesses placed him as the driver.
Police said Salvador failed field sobriety testing and his blood alcohol content registered .18 percent on a portable breath test. He refused further impairment testing and became extremely uncooperative.
Authorities said police had to force Salvador into a patrol vehicle, which he then attempted to escape from several times as he kicked at the vehicle’s door window.
Salvador was further restrained, as police reported he attempted to kick officers and made multiple threats to harm police.
Authorities booked Salvador into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:54 p.m. on preliminary charges that included Level 5 felony counts of attempted battery on a public safety official and attempted escape, Level 6 felony counts of operating while intoxicated (prior), obstruction of justice and intimidation directed to a public safety official, and misdemeanor counts of driving while suspended, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.
