dispatched to the 68 mile marker of northbound I-65 in regard to a possible intoxicated driver.

Deputy DeBoth reportedly found the suspect vehicle, which he noted was continuously crossing both lanes of traffic without any warning. The deputy said that the vehicle nearly caused several crashes.

Deputy DeBoth initiated a traffic stop and the driver, 46-year-old Mehn Tun, allegedly stopped his vehicle, at a severe angle, in the middle of the right lane of the interstate. After moving Tun’s vehicle to the shoulder of the road, the deputy said that he immediately detected the odor of alcohol and saw an empty alcohol bottle in the vehicle.

Jackson says that Tun was booked in the Bartholomew County Jail on charges of Operating a Motor Vehicle while Under the Influence. She says that he has since been released on $2,500 bond.
