From Local Sources
FERDINAND — Police took a driver into custody after responding to a Wednesday morning report of a car heading into Ferdinand driving recklessly.
A Ferdinand Police Department officer responding to the 8 a.m. report about reckless driving observed a southbound car repeatedly making lane changes without signaling.
After a traffic stop at 16th and Main streets, police said, the officer smelled the odor of burnt marijuana and noted signs of impairment from the driver, Kristopher L. Washington, 29, New Albany.
Washington allegedly failed field sobriety testing and refused chemical testing, even after police obtained a warrant. Marijuana was allegedly located in his car and, during a patdown at the security center, Washington was allegedly found to possess eight oxycodone pills and some crushed oxycodone pills.
Authorities booked Washington into the Dubois County Security Center just after noon Wednesday on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of obstruction of justice and misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated (test refusal), possession of marijuana and illegal possession of a controlled substance. He posted bond early today
