Rock Stops Suspected Drunk Driver

(La Porte County, IN) - A La Porte County woman heading home from a Christmas Party is charged with operating while intoxicated.

According to La Porte County Police, 46-year old Tracy Humphrey was still behind the wheel and sleeping when an officer showed up and woke her up. Humphrey said she was at a Christmas Party Thursday night in New Buffalo.


Police say it appears she was making a right-hand turn when the front tire on her SUV ran over a large rock at East Chicago Road and Lotus Drive in the Hudson Lake area. She came to a screeching halt near her home because her tires were above the ground from the undercarriage of her SUV resting on top of the rock.


Her alleged blood alcohol level was more than two times the legal limit.
