(BLOOMINGTON) - Excise officers arrested 23 people on 27 charges in Bloomington Saturday night, including a Carmel man who walked into the side of an officer's vehicle.
Indiana State Excise Police officers arrested 18 minors for illegal possession or consumption of alcohol, two people for furnishing alcohol to a minor, one minor for operating while intoxicated, two minors for possession of false ID, two people for public intoxication, one person for trespass, and one person for theft, officers say.
While officers were writing tickets at a traffic stop, a Carmel man walked into the side of an excise officer's police vehicle while emergency lights were on.
The man told officers he was an attorney and was unable to count or say the alphabet.
He had a blood alcohol content of .14 percent.
With concerns the man may walk into another vehicle, he was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital's emergency department.
After being checked, he was taken to the Monroe County Jail and has been preliminarily charged with public intoxication.
Officers also arrested a Bloomington man for a fourth time on Saturday. An officer saw the man purchasing beer inside of a store where he had arrested the same man three previous times on various charges. He was arrested Saturday for trespass.
