OWI for Collision Course Driver

(La Porte County, IN) - La Porte County Police arrested a man for drunk driving after he struck a tree and other objects.  22-year old Maxwell Barnaby was stopped Saturday afternoon on 175 East at U.S. 20.


Police said he was being followed by an off duty officer after striking a tree, multiple vehicles

and other objects.  One of the responding officers pulled in front of his car to keep him from crossing U.S. 20.


Police said there were two empty bottles of rum in the suspect's vehicle, which had a flat passenger's side tire and other damage like a hole in the back bumper.  There was also grass and tree bark embedded between the tire and rim. 


The New Carlisle man, who had an alleged blood alcohol more than three times the legal limit, could receive an up to one year jail sentence if convicted on the misdemeanor offense.
