(La Porte County, IN) - Alcohol-related charges have been filed in what must have been a scary situation on a La Porte County highway.
According to La Porte County Police, the driver was doing about 83 MPH on U.S 20. However, according to law enforcement officials, his speed topped 100 MPH when he started being followed by a sheriff’s deputy.
The driver was also veering from lane to lane on one side of the four-lane highway passing slower moving traffic. Eventually, the man pulled over near Wilhelm Road. Police said there was a case of beer in the back seat, and the driver thought he was in Michigan.
41-year old Brian Swinehart of Goshen had an alleged blood alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit. The drunk driving arrest was made Saturday evening.
