Erratic Driver Arrested for Operating While Intoxicated with Three Children Unrestrained in the Van

St. Joseph County- What started as a call from a concerned motorist on the Indiana Toll Road ultimately led to the arrest of a Chicago woman for operating while intoxicated and more. 

On August 10th at approximately 9:40 p.m. troopers on the Indiana Toll Road received a call from a concerned motorist about a Pontiac minivan that was driving erratically on the Indiana Toll Road in St. Joseph County.

A short time later Trooper Matthew Drudge located this van and subsequently stopped it for several traffic violations eastbound at the 75 mile marker.  This is located two miles west of the South Bend/Notre Dame exit.

While talking with the driver, Porche Sanders, age 35 of Chicago, IL, Trooper Drudge began to suspect that Sanders may be intoxicated and he also noticed three children in the back of the van without child seats or seatbelts on. 

Following an investigation for operating while intoxicated, Sanders was ultimately arrested on preliminary charges of: Operating While Intoxicated Endangerment, A-Misdemeanor, Operating While Intoxicated, C-Misdemeanor, and Possession of a Controlled Substance, A-Misdemeanor. Sanders was then transported to the St. Joseph County Jail.

Press release from Indiana State Police.
