From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A man operating a scooter was arrested late Tuesday night and accused of being impaired.
A Huntingburg Police Department officer was patrolling in the area of 14th and Main streets at 11:28 p.m. when a black scooter was observed crossing the centerline, nearly causing a head-on collision.
Officers conducted a traffic stop and smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Robert K. Orebaugh Jr., 30, Huntingburg.
Police say Orebaugh failed field sobriety testing and had a blood alcohol content that tested .165%.
Authorities booked Orebaugh into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:57 a.m. Wednesday on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of operating while intoxicated. The impairment charge was elevated to a felony because of a prior conviction for the offense within the last five years.
Orebaugh posted bond Wednesday afternoon.
