An Indianapolis man was arrested after police said he was driving 50 mph over the speed limit, refused to cooperate with officers and smelled like alcohol.
A driver was going 85 mph on Smith Valley Road near Runyon Road, where the speed limit is 35 mph. A deputy stopped the car about 11:15 p.m. Sunday and asked him to step out of the vehicle, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report
The driver, later identified as Michael J. Summitt, 24, refused to cooperate, yelling and swearing at deputies and lying on his back with his hands under him so he couldn’t be handcuffed. Deputies found marijuana in the car, the report said. A breath test showed his blood-alcohol content was .16 percent, or twice the legal limit for driving, the report said.
Summitt, 6241 Granner Drive, was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance, disorderly conduct, resisting police, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating while intoxicated and a traffic violation.
He was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was being held on $8,000 bond.
