Preliminary charges follow Huntingburg traffic stop

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Police accused a Huntingburg man of two offenses after an investigation following a Saturday morning traffic stop.


The Huntingburg Police Department stopped a 2002 Ford truck being driven at 1:04 a.m. by Scott A. Duncan, 47, 6131 State Road 161, Huntingburg, after observing the truck remain stationary for much of a green traffic signal at Sixth and Main streets.

Police said the truck’s registration was also expired.

Police suspected Duncan could be impaired but he reportedly refused to sign paperwork allowing a blood draw at Memorial Hospital, even after authorities sought and received a search warrant for the testing.

Authorities booked Duncan into the Dubois County Security Center on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of obstruction of justice and a preliminary misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated (test refusal).
