An alert driver's call resulted in a traffic stop last night in Brownsville. A tip came in to the Edmonson County Dispatch Center that there was an erratic driver in Brownsville. Lt. Shane Doyle, who was on duty at the time, caught up with Gregory K. Saltsman, 52, of Bee Spring and pulled Saltsman's vehicle over. As Doyle approached the window, he could see that Saltsman was behaving oddly. Saltsman admitted to having a drink some 5 hours earlier, but said that he was ok to drive. Doyle then asked Saltsman to participate in a number of field sobriety tests, all of which Doyle said were failed miserably. Saltsman was then placed under arrest and charged with driving under the influence and wreckless driving. He was lodged in the Hart County Jail.
"The Sheriff's Office takes driving under the influence very seriously," Doyle said. "We appreciate every tip we get from motorists. Anytime that they notice any erratic driving, please call the Edmonson County Dispatch Center at 270-597-2729."
