From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police took a man wanted on an active warrant into custody after a foot chase Tuesday afternoon.
An individual came to the Huntingburg Police Department just after 3 p.m. with information on a wanted subject who was staying at a friend’s house in Huntingburg. The person reported Reid A. Toby, 20, who had no current address, knew about his warrant and had been on the run.
A short time later, police said, the individual drove back with Toby in the passenger seat.
Police say Toby exited the vehicle, looked at a police car in front of the station and took off walking northbound. He began running after police identified themselves and yelled for him to stop, according to authorities.
When he was caught in the 500 block of East Third Street, police said, an officer detected the odor of alcohol. Police allege a portable breath test placed Toby’s blood alcohol content at .046%.
Authorities booked Toby into the Dubois County Security Center at 5:20 p.m. on the active warrant and new preliminary misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement and minor consuming.
Police said Toby’s warrant was for failing to appear for a case involving leaving the scene of an accident and minor consuming.
