(Mill Creek, IN) - A man was injured in an alcohol-related crash in La Porte County.
60-year old Roy Deutscher of Rolling Prairie is charged with Level 6 Felony Operating While Intoxicated.
According to police, his pick-up truck hit a tree on Taylor Road in the Mill Creek area Friday night. Deutscher told officers he had three beers and three shots at a bar in Walkerton. But he likely had a lot more than that to drink.
Police said his blood-alcohol level was over four times the legal limit. In addition, he was charged with a felony because of a prior OWI conviction from 2015.
According to the authorities, Deutscher was bleeding from his nose, but he declined medical treatment.
