Alcohol and Drug Related Arrest for Speeder

(La Porte County, IN) - A man allegedly driving nearly twice the speed limit in La Porte County is accused of having way too much to drink while possibly on cocaine.


Police said 30-year-old Steven Dabney, Jr. was clocked at 84 miles per hour on U.S. 20 near Fail Road. The speed limit there is 45 mph.


The South Bend man was still partially in the roadway and near a hillcrest when he pulled over and complied with a request to drive forward to a safer spot and stop entirely off the highway.


When asked if he had consumed any alcohol, police said the South Bend replied “no.” However, his alleged blood alcohol level was nearly four times the .08-percent legal limit. Police also found a small amount of cocaine in a plastic baggie.


Dabney is charged with Operating While Intoxicated and Possession of Cocaine, both Level 6 felonies.
