Warrant brings end to reckless driving case

From Local Sources

JASPER — Authorities booked a Vanderburgh County man into the Dubois County Security Center Monday on a failure-to-appear warrant in a reckless driving case.

Bryton D. Tucker, 24, Evansville, was cited into court in March on a misdemeanor count of reckless driving after an Indiana State Police trooper had clocked the Dodge Neon he was driving traveling at 111 mph on Interstate 64 near the Ferdinand exit on Jan. 23. Police said the car did not have a license plate at the time, Tucker did not have a driver’s license and he was transporting a small child.

The trooper who charged Tucker with reckless driving also gave him a warning for speeding and a ticket for driving without a license on the day of the offense.

A failure-to-appear warrant was issued in Dubois Superior Court on April 22 after Tucker failed to appear for two hearings in the case.

Authorities booked Tucker into the Dubois County Security Center at 6:25 p.m. Monday on the active warrant.

During a court appearance Tuesday, the court sentenced Tucker to four days in jail, with that sentence now complete given a two-day jail credit. He was also ordered to pay fines and costs in the amount of $221.
