Tpr. Joshua S. McGinnis was dispatched to a crash that occurred on State Route 338 in Turkey City.

Upon arrival, McGinnis observed a van at a final rest position on the right side berm. As McGinnis walked to the vehicle, he observed the operator of the vehicle, Barry E. Miller, being treated by EMS personnel.

EMTs related to McGinnis as they went to treat Miller, they observed Miller dump a plastic bottle of an unknown fluid onto the passenger side floorboard. EMTs related Miller's vital signs were fine, but he appeared to be under the influence of something. McGinnis then spoke with Miller.

McGinnis observed Miller to have extremely slurred speech. Miller also had difficulty taking his driver license out of his wallet, as well as opening his glove compartment to find his registration and insurance. McGinnis observed Miller's hands to be shaking uncontrollably while asked to provide the proper documents.

McGinnis asked Miller if he was on any medication, and Miller allegedly related he was. Miller allegedly related he was on heart medication and was not supposed to be operating a vehicle while taking his medication.

McGinnis then had Miller perform field sobriety tests. While engaging in the test, Miller was unable to finish, stumbling backwards, leaning on his vehicle momentarily and falling over on his back side. Miller was then observed to be snoring, apparently asleep.

Miller was then transported to Clarion Hospital. At the hospital, Doctor Shaun Simko and RN Laura Mika related to McGinnis that while speaking to Miller, they could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Miller's breath.
