Teenager Arrested While Being Interviewed by South Bend Reporter

While McDonough, a reporter for the South Bend ABC affiliate, was interviewing an 18-year-old High School student about his car rear ending a school bus, South Bend police stepped in and arrested the man. “In Indiana it is illegal to have metabolites in your system while you are driving,” said Lt. Gene Eyster who approached the suspect during the interview.

Acting off a tip, police learned the man may have ditched drug paraphernalia in a nearby garbage can after the accident. “We are also going to take you down for a drug test,” said Lt. Eyster.  “Which is going to tell me exactly what is in your system and how strong.”
