Ferdinand Man Arrested for OWI Following Accident

The Dubois County Sheriff's Department arrested a Ferdinand man for Operating While Intoxicated Sunday night following a one-vehicle accident on a county road, just north of Ferdinand Road Northwest.

22-year-old Nicholas Jochem told investigators he lost control of his pick-up truck on loose gravel and the vehicle overturned.

Jochem, who was not seriously injured, says he got out of the vehicle and walked to a friend's home to call 911.

Deputies determined Jochem had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit.

His vehicle was totaled in the accident.
