From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A Friday evening traffic stop resulted in a man being jailed, but not before he was checked at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
A Huntingburg Police Department officer who stopped a 2005 Chevrolet Uplander minivan at 12th Street and Styline Drive at 7:45 p.m. dispatched an ambulance after the driver, Chad A. Klein, 39, 3823 W. Portersville Road, Jasper, reported his chest hurt.
During the stop it was confirmed that Klein had a suspended license and was classified as a habitual traffic violator. Police say a smoking device with burnt marijuana residue was located in the minivan’s passenger-side door pocket.
While at the hospital, police said, a blood draw indicated there was marijuana and amphetamines in Klein’s system.
Authorities booked Klein into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:05 a.m. Saturday on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator and misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated (drugs) and possession of paraphernalia.
