(VINCENNES) - Wednesday at approximately 10:20 p.m., Indiana State Trooper Ryan Johnson stopped 025-year-old Alexander Dugas, of Vincennes, in the 600 block of North 3rd Street for driving the wrong way on a one-way street and for not wearing his seat belt.

Trooper Johnson detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage during the stop and observed signs that Dugas may be impaired.

After Dugas performed all the field sobriety tests he fled on foot southbound in the alley between 3rd and 4th Street. He continued to run west on Seminary Street and then south on 3rd Street. Dugas then ran east between a couple of houses in the 400 block of North 3rd. He attempted to elude Trooper Johnson by jumping over a couple of six foot fences, but he was eventually caught and arrested without further incident.

Police says, Dugas had a blood alcohol content of .15 percent. He was taken to the Knox County Jail where he is currently being held on bond on misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated, resisting law enforcement, and operating a vehicle without ever being licensed.

Assisting Agency at the scene was officers with the Vincennes Police Department.
