Off-duty officer helps take an alleged drunk-driver off the road

An alert off-duty Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department Detective helped take an alleged drunk-driver off the street.

Sheriff’s Department Spokesperson Judy Jackson says that just after 10 JULIAN CORY MICHAELp.m. on Monday, Detective Sgt. Chad Swank advised dispatchers of a possible intoxicated driver. She says that Sgt. Swank followed the suspect’s vehicle until Sgt. Jim Stevens was able to intercept it. Deputy Adam Warner initiated a traffic stop which lead to the arrest of 34-year-old Cory Julian, of Hope.

Officials with the Sheriff’s Department say that, despite several warnings, Julian engaged in “disruptive behavior” that also led to him being charged with Disorderly Conduct. Jackson says that Julian was booked in the Bartholomew County Jail on $11,000 bond.
