OWI Charges in Shed Collision

(Springville, IN) - Charges have been filed against a man who allegedly had an extremely high blood alcohol content when his vehicle struck a shed in La Porte County.


Sheriff’s deputies Saturday night responded to 1621 Springville Road near U.S 20 and Indiana 39. Police said 31-year old Trevor Williams was unconscious after striking the shed. Williams later regained consciousness.


Raising the suspicions of officers included a powerful odor of alcohol on his breath, the driver having difficulty standing, and numerous open alcohol beverage containers in his vehicle, police said.


Police said the amount of alcohol in his bloodstream was four and a half times above the .08-percent legal limit.


The OWI charge against the Valparaiso man was upgraded to a Level 6 Felony due to him having a prior OWI conviction in April, police said.
