Indiana police: I-74 driver pulled over for speeding in car missing a tire

Man arrested for operating while intoxicated

HILLSBORO, Ind. (WISH) — A patrolling Indiana trooper on Wednesday afternoon on I-74 pulled over a speeding car that was missing a tire and traveling on the rim, police said Thursday night.

Anthony D. Hayes, 39, of Indianapolis, was arrested and taken to the Fountain County jail in Veedersburg after he was stopped, police say. It was unclear Friday if Hayes remained in jail.

The Fountain County Sheriff’s Office told News 8 by phone that it was closed Thursday night and could not provide information on Hayes or his jail booking photo until the office reopens Friday morning. News 8 also emailed the sheriff but did not immediately hear a response. News 8 emailed the jail on Friday to request the jail booking photo.

Online court records on Friday showed Hayes has been charged with three misdemeanors: operating a vehicle while intoxicated; driving while suspended; and possession of marijuana. His initial hearing was set for 11:45 a.m. March 4 in Fountain Circuit Court.

State police say Hayes was pulled over about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix on I-74 eastbound near the 20-mile marker. That’s near the State Road 341 overpass northeast of the town of Hillsboro. The traffic stop happened about 5 miles from the nearest I-74 interchange.

Hillsboro is about a 70-minute drive northwest of downtown Indianapolis.

This story was updated Friday with charges filed in the case.
