According to police reports, an officer observed a vehicle sitting in a field in the 200 block of South Heritage Way. As the officer approached the vehicle, a male exited from the passenger seat and stumbled toward the officer. The driver said he didn’t know how he got into the field. He had unsteady balance, slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. The officer asked the man why he drove through the field and he said he didn’t drive through the field that he drove down the road. While speaking with the man, the officer noticed a strong smell of alcoholic beverage coming from him. According to the report, the man proceeded to fail a field sobriety test, a portably breath test (registering .30) and could not stand on his own to proceed with other tests. While waiting for the tow truck, the man said the vehicle he was driving was in drive with the headlights on and the ignition in run position. The man was transported to St. Vincent Hospital in Anderson for medical release. Another officer stated while at the hospital the man would not stop cussing and yelling. After being advised that he would not be able to call his father, the man threatened at first physically harm and then to kill the officer. The officer then had to physically help the man sit down on the hospital bed.
