Another Driver on Meth Arrested

(Kingsford Heights, IN) - Another driver from Kingsford Heights is accused of driving under the influence of methamphetamine.


Jerrod Bratcher, 40, is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with Operating While Intoxicated and Possession of Methamphetamine.


According to court documents, a police officer began following a 1997 Lincoln after the car turned right without a turn signal activated last week in the area of Range Road and U.S. 35/U.S. 6.


Police said the car veered over the center line and turned left onto Chatfield Road without its turn signal blinking. The vehicle then began traveling down the middle of the road, police said.


During a traffic stop, police said Bratcher seemed “jumpy” and showed signs of significant impairment. A bag containing more than 30 grams of methamphetamine was seized from the vehicle. The estimated street value of the drug was over $1,000.


57-year-old Philip Seger was also arrested last week in Kingsford Heights on allegations of driving under the influence of methamphetamine. Seger told investigators he consumes a $20 bag of methamphetamine daily several times weekly.
