(GIBSON CO.) - Just before midnight Monday, Indiana State troopers Brock Buchanan and Paul Stolz were patrolling US 41 northbound near County Road 400 South when they observed a pickup truck parked facing the wrong way.

The vehicle was parked facing south between the median and the northbound passing lane. The male driver was passed out behind the wheel.

After troopers were able to get the driver to wake up, he appeared to be very confused.

Troopers also found a near empty pint of Whiskey on the seat next to the driver's leg.

The driver, 55-year-old Donald W. Seitz of Boonville, was so impaired that troopers were unable to administer field sobriety tests.

He was taken to Gibson General Hospital in Princeton where further investigation revealed Seitz had a blood alcohol content of .32 percent. Seitz was eventually taken to the Gibson County Jail where he is currently being held on bond.
