On Thursday, December 10, 2015 at 3:40am the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of Mill Road and Folz Road upon report of a vehicle stalled in the roadway.
The responding sheriff’s deputy found a black 2014 Dodge Charger stopped in the intersection. The driver of the vehicle was found asleep behind the wheel. The vehicle’s engine was running and the transmission was in gear.
The deputy woke the driver, who identified himself as Mr. Joshua Randall Woods. Mr. Woods smelled of alcoholic beverages and the odor of raw marijuana was detected in the vehicle. Mr. Woods explained to the deputy that he was on his way home from a bar. Mr. Woods admitted to drinking, but denied having smoked any marijuana.
