Man Arrested After Moped Accident

A man was arrested Monday after driving his moped under the influence.

Jack Parker reportedly told police that he had a few drinks at a Bass Lake establishment and lost control of his moped on U.S. 35 just south of the Knox city limits. He was attempting to get back onto the moped when the officer arrived at the scene.

He was arrested after failing several field sobriety tests at the scene of the incident. A Knox City police officer conducted the tests, but turned custody over to the Indiana State Police who will take over the case.

Parker was booked into the Starke County Jail on a preliminary charge of Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated and has since bonded out of the jail.
