Rock Co. deputies arrested an Evansville man Monday afternoon for 6th offense OWI after his truck went into the ditch.
The runoff happened just before 4:00 p.m. in the 5500 block of N. Weary Road in Center Township.
A passerby called in and said the driver appeared to be under the influence.
A deputy arrived and found the driver. 32-year-old Curt Baumer said he lost control of his truck on the snow covered and slippery road.
Deputies say he admitted to having alcohol before the crash. Baumer failed field sobriety testing.
He was taken to the hospital as a precaution, where he also agreed to a chemical test of his blood.
Along with being arrested for OWI, Baumer was cited for failure to maintain control of his vehicle.
