Upon conducting a traffic stop near County Road 750 East Deputy Smith identified the driver as 34 year old Brian Thomas of Elberfeld. While speaking with Mr. Thomas Deputy Smith detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver’s breath. At that point Deputy Smith began a roadside investigation that resulted in Mr. Thomas being taken into custody and transported to the Gibson County Jail. 

At the Gibson County Jail Mr. Thomas was charged with Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated (DUI). He has since posted a $650 bond.
