HUNTINGBURG — A Friday night arrest for speeding north of Huntingburg resulted in a felony impaired driving arrest.
An Indiana State Police trooper stopped a 2006 Chevrolet passenger car at 10:48 p.m. for allegedly traveling at 88 mph in a 55 mph zone at U.S. 231 and Phoenix Drive.
The driver, Gadir Ochoa Prat, 47, 163 Bretz St., Huntingburg, failed field sobriety testing and had a blood alcohol content of .097% when tested at the Huntingburg Police Station.
Authorities booked Ochoa Prat into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:13 a.m. Saturday on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of operating while intoxicated. The preliminary impaired driving charge was elevated to a felony because of a prior conviction for the offense within the last five years, according to authorities.
The Indiana State Police were assisted by the Huntingburg Police Department.
