Impaired Driver Given a Free Stay at County Jail

(La Porte, IN) - The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office pulled another suspected drunk driver off the local roadways.


Shortly after 2:00 a.m. Friday morning, police were dispatched to Coolspring Township on the report of a reckless driver.


In the area of CR 950 West and CR 300 North, Deputy Alex Pishkur located a red GMC SUV matching the report’s description. The SUV, which showed damage to its front and driver’s side, was stopped at the intersection for an extended period of time.


The vehicle’s driver, seeming to disregard the officer’s flashing lights, drove around for a few minutes before pulling into a driveway on CR 200 North.


Duputy Pishkur approached the vehicle, but the driver, 56-year-old Carla Biddle of Michigan City, was noncompliant. Pishkur removed Biddle from the SUV and placed her in custody.


She is being held in the La Porte County Jail without bond, charged with Operating While Intoxicated and Resisting Law Enforcement.
