CPD arrests Seymour man after he was spotted driving

COLUMBUS, Ind. — Columbus police officers arrested a Seymour man for operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he was spotted driving the wrong way on Third Street early Sunday morning.

At approximately 12:40 a.m., CPD officers observed the vehicle traveling the wrong way and a traffic stop was conducted a short time later on State Street near Stadler Drive, said Lt. Matt Harris, Columbus Police Department spokesman. The officers made contact with the driver of the vehicle, Michael A. Camp, 28, of9036 N. County Road 375E, Seymour and noted that his speech was slurred and he had bloodshot and glassy eyes. Camp later failed several field sobriety tests that were administered by officers, Harris said.

Camp was transported to the Columbus Police Department where he provided a breath sample of .128%. Camp was placed under arrest and transported to the Bartholomew County Jail where he was remanded on a preliminary charge of operating a motor vehicle
while intoxicated.

Camp’s bond was set at $2,500 although he was released under the probation’s department program that allows qualifying defendants to be released from jail without having to post bond.
