HUNTINGBURG — A Friday night pursuit east of Huntingburg resulted in the arrest of a man accused of impaired driving and resisting law enforcement.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy involved in the incident was working an extra patrol during a holiday mobilization designed to get impaired drivers off the road.
The incident began at 9:25 p.m. when the deputy allegedly clocked an eastbound 2000 Dodge Stratus going 72 mph in a 55 mph zone along State Road 64 east of Huntingburg. The deputy said the car accelerated to speeds in excess of 100 mph as soon as he activated his emergency lights to attempt a traffic stop.
The car then turned north on County Road 50E, where speeds reached 85 mph before the driver, Kyle L. Paulin, 27, 4542 S. 50E, pulled into a private drive.
The deputy who reported noticing the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Paulin took him to the Huntingburg Police Station where a certifited test allegedly placed his blood alcohol content at .14 percent.
Authorities booked Paulin into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:42 p.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle and preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated and driving while suspended with a previous conviction for the offense. Paulin was also ticketed for speeding, according to the sheriff’s department.
Paulin posted bond Saturday morning.
