OWI for Driver Posing Safety Threat

(La Porte County, IN) - A La Porte man, posing a real danger to himself and other travelers, has been charged with Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated.


Officers, on Saturday night, were notified about a possibly impaired driver heading out of the La Porte city limits while going southbound on U.S. 35.


The caller also reported that the vehicle in question was all over the roadway, sometimes driving off the pavement and nearly nearly striking objects.


A responding police officer, noticing the same driving behavior, pulled over 32-year-old Adrian Martinez on 250 South near 150 East. Martinez showed all of the classic signs of being impaired and had beer in a cooler behind the driver’s seat.


He was arrested after allegedly refusing to take a blood alcohol test.
