A 24 year old man from Lafayette, Indiana was arrested yesterday afternoon by Indiana State Police Trooper Justin Snyder after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car next to a gas pump at a Wolf Lake gas station.

The investigation by Snyder indicated at approximately 12:00 p.m., he responded to a report of person passed out in a running vehicle at the Marathon gas station located at US 33 and Tippecanoe Street in Wolf Lake. When he arrived, Snyder saw the man seat belted, unconscious, and breathing inside of a locked 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix.

Within moments, Noble County Sheriff Deputies Doug Ewell and Todd Weber arrived, and all three tried to get the man, later identified as Eshon Lee Anthony Curry-Grogg to wake up. After waking then passing back out numerous times, Curry-Grogg finally woke long enough to roll down his driver’s window.

Curry-Grogg was assisted in exiting his vehicle before becoming combative with officers. He was quickly subdued and taken into custody. Further investigation by Snyder indicated that Curry-Grogg had pulled into the gas station at approximately 11:12 a.m. and that no one else was in the vehicle with him. It was also determined that he had not exited the vehicle until after officers arrived. A subsequent search of the vehicle allegedly turned up a substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Curry-Grogg was transported to Parkview Noble Hospital for a blood draw and medical evaluation for incarceration.

He was then taken to and incarcerated in the Noble County Jail on the following preliminary charges:

-Operating While Intoxicated with a Prior Conviction

-Operating While Intoxicated Under a Controlled Substance

-Possession of Methamphetamine (increased to a Level 5 Felony due to proximity to Wolf Lake Elementary School)

-Resisting Law Enforcement
