Driver arrested on operating while intoxicated charge

Bartholomew County sheriff deputies arrested a driver who is accused of crossing the center line and sideswiping a vehicle with his pickup truck in the area of 9935 W. County Road 450S.

Deputy Matt Bush said the driver of the pickup truck, Adam Cody, 30, 2927 Ninth St., appeared to be under the influence and smelled of alcohol, deputies said.

Bush learned that Cody’s truck had sideswiped a sports utility vehicle driven by a 46-year-old woman, Sherry Joy, who was traveling with her 3-year-old granddaughter, about 8:54 p.m. Sunday, deputies said. The two were not injured, deputies said.

Cody was arrested on a preliminary charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and was released from the Bartholomew County Jail on $2,500 bond.
