Huntingburg Man Arrested for OWI and Driving While Suspended Prior Following Crash in Jasper

Jasper Police arrested a Huntingburg man Thursday for Operating While Intoxicated and Driving While Suspended Prior following a one vehicle accident in the 2300 block of Cathy Lane.

Officers say when they arrived they found 53-year-old Peter Lemond still in the driver’s seat of his truck and attempting to huff vapors from a can of compressed air.

Police say after speaking with Lemond he admitted to huffing compressed air prior to the accident.

The huffing caused him to lose consciousness and veer off the roadway striking the guy wires to a utility pole.

The impact caused the utility pole to snap in half.

He is being held without bond in the Dubois County Security Center.
