Game of Chance with Liquor Arrest

(La Porte County, IN) - It was like Russian roulette but not with a gun. Fortunately, nobody was hurt.


According to police, 47-year-old William Augle was weaving on U.S. 30 Sunday afternoon and nearly struck another vehicle heading in the same direction.


Augle continued to weave, then pulled into the driveway of his home in Hanna not long after an officer activated his flashing lights and siren. Augle claimed to have had "two beers, four hours ago." However, a test revealed an alleged blood alcohol level close to five times the legal limit.


Augle is charged with Operating While Intoxicated, a felony, because of a past conviction for driving impaired.
