From Local Sources
JASPER — Police who observed a motorist committing traffic infractions early Sunday alleged that driver was impaired following a traffic stop.
A Jasper Police Department officer who observed a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox exceeding the speed limit in the vicinity of Second and Clay streets at 3:36 a.m. followed the vehicle as it went northbound on Newton Street.
Police allege the driver, Baron S. McCann, 25, 425 W. Sixth St., Jasper, failed to stop at Third and Newton streets, traveled 41 mph in the 25 mph zone and went left of center at Seventh and Newton streets.
A traffic stop was conducted at 10th and Newton streets.
An officer, who reported noticing the smell associated with alcohol consumption as he approached the vehicle, said McCann’s blood alcohol content later tested .15% after a blood draw at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
Authorities booked McCann into the Dubois County Security Center at 6:24 a.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated. McCann was released on his own recognizance Sunday afternoon and given a date to appear in court.
McCann was also cited for driving while suspended.
