From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police who attempted a traffic stop on Huntingburg’s north end Tuesday morning took the driver into custody, accusing him of driving while suspended and resisting law enforcement.
A Huntingburg Police Department officer who observed a vehicle speeding westbound at 6:57 a.m. on Phoenix Drive west of Chestnut Street used radar to clock the speed at 62 mph in the 45 mph zone.
The officer attempted a traffic stop but reported that the driver, Charles D. Fight, 32, 6220 N. State Road 545, Dubois, continued on until finally pulling into a parking spot at the Farbest Foods parking lot at 4689 S. 400W.
An investigation later determined that Fight’s license was suspended and he had previously been convicted for driving while suspended.
Authorities booked Fight into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:12 a.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle and a preliminary misdemeanor count of driving while suspended (prior).
A KARS wrecker assisted.
