According to officials with the Indiana University Police Department, Mosquera-Perea was southbound on Dunn and had his left turn signal on. It appeared he was going to turn eastbound on a one-way westbound street, but did not. Mosquera-Perea then turned his signal off, and proceeded at a slow rate of speed down the road, weaving in and out of the lane and hitting a curb.

The officer then stopped Mosquera-Perea’s vehicle. He was arrested and taken to the Monroe County Jail. Police say his BAC was .15 , twice Indiana’s legal limit of point .08.
