Impaired driver arrested on US 40 driving 101 mph 

A Linton man was arrested for driving while impaired after Indiana State Police clocked him driving over 100 miles per hour.


About 5:30 pm Monday, Trooper Tyler Turchi from the Putnamville State Police Post was patrolling on US 40 near Clay County Road 225 West when he clocked the eastbound, 2015 Jeep Comanche traveling at 101 mph. The Jeep was eventually stopped on US 40 at State Road 340 and the driver was identified as Daniel R. Turner, 28. 


According to the ISP report, an alcohol odor wafted through the air and Turner was displaying signs of impairment, prompting field sobriety tests, which were failed. After further investigation, it was discovered that Turner had been drinking prior to the traffic stop and did not have permission to operate the vehicle he was driving.  He also refused to submit to a certified chemical test. 


Turner was arrested and taken to the Clay County Jail where he was held on bond.
