A Kewanna man was arrested Sunday after police found he was driving his vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
A Pulaski County police officer observed a car coming from The Eagles Lodge in Winamac, traveling at a high rate of speed. The vehicle continued north on U.S. 35 and the officer reportedly saw the vehicle’s speed fluctuate and it crossed the center line and fog line. A traffic stop was conducted at the intersection of U.S. 35 and 700 North. The officer asked the driver, Seth Kasten, to exit the vehicle and participate in several sobriety tests. Kasten reportedly failed all of the tests and a Portable Breathalizer Test showed that his blood alcohol content was .121, which is over the legal limit.
Kasten was placed into custody and taken to the Pulaski County Jail. He has a preliminary charge of Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated – Endangering a Person.
