Huntingburg Man Jailed After Driving 100 MPH While Impaired

Washington, IN (Local Sources) – The Fourth of July holiday ended abruptly for a Huntingburg man, as he spent the remainder of his night in the Daviess County Jail on impaired driving charges, according to Indiana State Police.

Shortly before 11:30pm, ISP trooper Beau Brumett observed a car driving along Indiana 257 at more than 100 miles per hour.  Brumett stopped the car on 257 just south of the White River in Pike County.

IPS says while talking with the driver, 57-year old Russell Morris of Huntingburg, Brumett believed Morris was driving his vehicle while impaired.  After testing at Daviess Community Hospital in Washington, Morris was found to be under the influence of THC and opiates.

Morris was transported to the Daviess County Jail without incident and charged with Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated and Reckless Driving, both misdemeanors.
