One person arrested in Evansville for DUI


(WEHT)- The Evansville Police Department arrested Deadra Armstead after they say Armstead struck two parked cars and then crashed into a patio at the River Bend on Franklin St. in Evansville early Sunday morning.

A witness at the scene told police he saw Armstead try to crawl over the center console of the car from the drivers seat to the passenger side seat. Jhari Bacon, a passenger in the car, told police she thought Armstead was too intoxicated to drive.

Authorities say Armstead’s eyes were “glassed over” when they attempted to perform a field sobriety test and took Armstead into custody.
