(Kingsford Heights, IN) - A Kingsford Heights man with a history of impaired driving was allegedly caught behind the wheel again on drugs. 57-year-old Philip Seger was arrested Thursday in Kingsford Heights.
Police said it was almost dark, but he was driving without headlights, then he veered over the center line and back to his right, partially into the grass.
When asked if he had taken any illegal substances, Seger said the last time was when he used cocaine 20 years ago, according to police. After that, however, police said he tested positive for methamphetamine. Court documents disclosed that Seger then revealed he has a $20 bag per day habit.
He was arrested for Operating While Intoxicated and Possession of a Controlled Substance. Seger also has an OWI charge still pending from Lake County and a long history of having his driver’s license suspended.
According to police, his driving posed a real danger because many people were out walking just before he was pulled over.
