(LOOGOOTEE) - A Washington man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after causing a disturbance at a Loogootee home.

At 3:52 p.m., Martin County dispatchers received a 911 call from a woman who said a male was banging on the front door of her home and refusing to leave.

Fearing for her safety, the woman took her four year old child and left out of a back door of the home, going to a neighbor's home without the male knowing.

Trooper Ross Johnson and Loogootee Police Chief Kelly Rayhill arrived at the home moments later. There they found 33-year-old Derek Worland who was extremely intoxicated.

Officers learned that Worland had driven from Washington to Loogootee and had been at the residence for about 15 minutes prior to their arrival.

Police say Worland had a blood alcohol content of .32 percent, four times the legal driving limit of .08 percent.

Worland was arrested on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a prior conviction, public intoxication, and intimidation and was taken to the Martin County Jail.
