Join the One WINNER is drawn at the end of each month Five arrested for driving while intoxicated this week By Andy Heuring Five people were recent- ly arrested for driving while intoxicated in Pike County. An Evansville woman was arrested after a motorist re- ported a blue Ford truck was passing multiple vehicles at a time and ran one off the road at about 8:30 p.m. Sun- day. Police were told the vehi- cle was on Highway 61 enter- ing Pike County from Knox County. Petersburg Patrolman Scott Arnold was able to lo- cate the vehicle, southbound on I-69. He said it was driv- ing on I-69 straddling the centerline between the two southbound lanes, when he stopped it near the 39 mile marker. He talked with the driver, identified as Brooke Bays, 21, of 16820 Petersburg Rd., Evansville. Trooper C. J. Boeckman said Bays admitted to smok- ing marijuana earlier in the evening. Bays failed field sobriety tests and was taken to Da- viess Community Hospital where she tested positive for marijuana and benzodiaze- pines. She was charged with operating a vehicle while in- toxicated (controlled sub- stance). A Petersburg man was ar- rested after he was crashed on CR500E at about 7 p.m. Thursday night. Tyler Reed Jones, 27, Pe- tersburg was arrested by Trooper Manning. Jones failed field sobriety tests and then tested 0.29 percent for blood alcohol content, which is more than three times the legal limit for blood alcohol content in Indiana. He was arrested on a charge of op- erating a vehicle while in- toxicated. A Jasper man was arrest- ed for drunken driving after police stopped him for driv- ing left of center on Highway 356 near Sycamore St. in Pe- tersburg. Bennie D. Rust, 48, of Jasper was driving a 2003 Dodge when police stopped him at 8:18 p.m. Thursday. Police located metham- phetamine, paraphernalia and a handgun in his vehi- cle. Rust was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated (controlled sub- stance), carrying a hand- gun with out a permit, pos- session of meth less than 5 grams, a Level 6 felony, and possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. His passenger Laura Morgan, 33, was arrested on charges of possession of meth, possession of mar- ijuana and possession of par- aphernalia. An Evansville man was ar- rested early Monday morn- ing after police stopped him for making unsafe lane movements on I-69. Sean P. Wood, 31, of Evansville, was stopped by Trooper C. J. Boeckman. He noticed the odor of alcohol and Wood failed field sobri- ety tests. He was taken to the Pike County Jail, where he tested 0.12 percent for blood alcohol content. The legal limit in Indiana is 0.08 percent. He was preliminarily charged with operating a ve- hicle while intoxicated. A Wheatland man was ar- rested on Sunday, May 5 for driving while intoxicated (controlled substance). Carl E. Liggett, 58, of 100 N. Nimnicht Rd., Wheatland was stopped after police saw him driving with an invalid license. Indiana State Trooper Hunter Manning said in a probable cause affidavit he noticed a 1990 Nissan truck and ran the plate it returned to Liggett and showed his li- cense type as an ID card. Manning pulled Liggett over as he left Casey's park- ing lot and Liggett pulled into the Liquor Store park- ing lot. Trooper Manning said Liggett admitted his license wasn't valid. While talking with Liggett and his pas- senger he noticed the odor of marijuana. Police found a hand- rolled cigarette next to their vehicle that appeared to be a marijuana cigarette. Liggett's passenger, Leo- na Liggett, removed a plas- tic bag from her pants and gave it to police. Trooper Manning said the bag contained plant materi- al believed to be marijuana. Liggett failed field sobri- ety tests and was taken to the Daviess Community Hospital, where he tested positive for marijuana. He was charged with op- erating a vehicle while in- toxicated (controlled sub- stance). Leona was cited for marijuana possession. DISCOVER THE STORY BEHIND THE STORYTELLER.
