WARSAW – A 48-year-old Sheldon man was arrested for aggravated drunken driving after what began as a 911 call about a possible attempted burglary in the Town of Bennington on Valentine’s Day.

Robert E. Dehr was arrested by State Troopers who responded to that Feb. 14 call and learned he had been knocking on doors on Dersam Road in the township because he had driven his car into a ditch. After troopers found Dehr had a blood-alcohol level of 0.18 per cent, over twice the state’s legal limit, he was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated driving while intoxicated. He was also charged with making an unsafe lane change. After his arraignment in Bennington Town Court he was released pending further court proceedings in several weeks.
