Arrest at Winery on Wheels

(La Porte, IN) - La Porte County Police say a man drank way too much wine before nearly colliding with another vehicle.


An officer was traveling behind the weaving suspect Saturday afternoon when he nearly hit a vehicle passing him from behind on Pine Lake Avenue near Indiana 39.


Upon stopping the driver, the officer could still smell alcohol on the driver's breath despite being very windy outside. Roy Fleming, 58, of South Bend, was taken into custody for Operating While Intoxicated.


Police said there were three bottles of wine in his vehicle, including one that was empty and one that was half full. There was also wine in a cup beside the driver's seat and a corkscrew within arm's reach of the driver.


Fleming's alleged blood alcohol level was .24-percent or three times the .08-percent legal limit.
