Chicago truck driver, Maurice C. Gregory, was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of marijuana while en route from Rockford to Indiana. Gregory was cited for DUI, following too closely, unsafe lane movement and log book violations.
While on patrol on Indiana 63, State Trooper Joe Rutledge noticed a semi pulling a box trailer driving 12 mph over the speed limit. Rutledge followed the truck and reported that it was weaving from side to side, following another vehicle too closely, and then suddenly veered into the passing lane. The trooper then stopped the vehicle and, after approaching, noticed Gregory was only wearing a t-shirt and boxers. The interior of the cab allegedly smelled like burnt marijuana. The driver’s log book showed no entries for the past five days which is a federal commercial vehicle violation.
Gregory was taken to Terre Haute Regional Hospital for a blood test and later incarcerated in the Vermillion County Jail.
