Pike Co. man arrested for felony

A Pike County man was arrested for felony OWI.

Indiana Conservation Officers have arrested Jacob M. Kaeck, 27, from Otwell, for felony, (prior conviction), operating while intoxicated.

Thursday evening, around 5:30 p.m., Conservation Officer Blake Everhart was patrolling on Pike County Road 900 East, south of State Road 356. The officer passed a Honda four-wheeler, driven by Kaeke, with a passenger, traveling in the opposite direction. Not seeing an off-road vehicle registration sticker required for operation on a public road way, Officer Everhart turned around in order to initiate a vehicle stop. In the meantime, Kaeck had pulled over to the side of the road in anticipation of the officer’s approach.

Upon approaching the driver, the officer detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage. After further investigation, the officer suspected driver impairment. Alcoholic beverage containers were also being transported on the vehicle.

Kaeck was transported to the Pike County Sheriff’s Department where a field sobriety test and breathalyzer test were conducted. Kaeck tested .12 BAC. Kaeck was also cited for no off-road vehicle registration. Indiana Conservation Officers would like to remind the off-road vehicle riding public that alcohol consumption while operating is a major contributor to off-road vehicle accidents, injuries and deaths and Indiana’s driving while intoxicated laws also apply to the operation of an off-road vehicle.
