(LINTON) - Wednesday evening, a Linton police officer arrested a man suspected of driving while he was intoxicated. The officer also said he was texting while driving.

Anna Rochelle, of the Greene County Daily World reports, Aaron David Parker, 26, of Bloomfield, was taken into custody and transported to the Greene County Jail where he was booked in on a preliminary charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, a class A misdemeanor.
