* July 28 -- One female driver, suspected of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, might have ended up in jail late Tuesday evening, but once taken to the hospital for a blood sample, her alcohol level was so high, she could not be released back into the officer's custody.

LPD Officer Tom Jerrels was working when he got a call from an off-duty reserve officer about a possibly intoxicated driver in the northwest area of Linton.

Jerrels was able to locate the vehicle around 10:30 p.m. in the area of NW 5th and J Streets. He made a traffic stop -- the plate lights were not functioning.

The driver, Charlotte C. Bresach, 51, Linton, was operating a green 2000 Dodge Durango. She was believed to be intoxicated and was transported to the hospital for a blood draw. The medical staff took the sample and the police report states, "It was determined that the female's blood-alcohol level was too high for her to be released."

LPD Reserve Officer Michael Harroll assisted with this investigation.

The case remains under active investigation.
