Report: Greenfield man arrested after driving to police post drunk

MARSHALL COUNTY — A Greenfield man was drunk behind the wheel when he drove to a northern Indiana state police post and asked to speak to an officer, officials said.

Scott Schroeder, 57, of Greenfield, was arrested this week in Marshall County on a charge of operating while intoxicated, according to a press release.

Schroeder drove to the Indiana State Police post in Bremen around 5:30 p.m. Oct. 24 to retrieve some of his belongings from an unrelated incident, police said. Schroeder arrived at the post, parked out front and went to the door to ask to speak to an officer, police said.

Trooper Patrick O’Keefe began speaking to Schroeder and immediately suspected Schroeder was impaired. O’Keefe began an investigation and found Schroeder had three times the legal limit of .08 blood-alcohol percent, officials said.

Schroeder was booked into the Marshall County Jail on preliminary charges of operating while intoxicated as a Class C misdemeanor and operating while intoxicated endangerment as a Class A misdemeanor.

He also had active warrants from other counties accusing him of operating while intoxicated and criminal recklessness, officials said.
