OWI Charge Filed Against Moped Driver

(La Porte County, IN) - Driving a moped doesn’t mean you can’t be arrested for drunk driving. Jon Miller, 58, is charged in La Porte Circuit Court.


According to court documents, a Kingsford Heights Police Officer spotted a moped run a stop sign about 4 p.m. last week in the area of U.S 35 and 500 South.


Miller, who was identified as the driver, allegedly had a blood alcohol level slightly above the .08-percent legal limit. In addition, he was charged with OWI as a level 6 felony because of a prior OWI conviction.


Miller could face as much as a 30-month prison sentence. According to state law, driving impaired is a violation while operating any motorized vehicle.
