From Local Sources
JASPER — Police accused a Vanderburgh County man of impaired driving after a Wednesday night traffic stop.
A Jasper Police Department officer on patrol reported noticing a silver Ford Focus exiting a cinema and restaurant parking lot on Brucke Strasse west of Third Avenue at 8:20 p.m. The officer noticed the car because it was stopped halfway out into a lane of travel for a prolonged period.
The officer followed the car and initiated a traffic stop in the vicinity of Second and Clay streets after the driver, Samuel J. Hertel, 45, Evansville, allegedly made two rolling stops at intersections.
The officer, who reported smelling the odor of alcoholic beverages and noticing signs of impairment, reported Hertel failed field sobriety testing. Hertel’s blood alcohol content allegedly tested .09 percent after a blood draw at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, according to police.
Authorities booked Hertel into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:38 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated.
