EVANSVILLE

An Evansville man was charged with a felony intoxicated-driving offense and two counts of bail jumping one week after he was charged for a suspected fourth intoxicated-driving offense.

Bruce Alan Crull, 61, of 20 Countryside Drive No. 2, was arrested on a charge of fourth-offense intoxicated-driving Tuesday after police pulled him over for driving below the speed limit and with his turn signal on without turning, according to a criminal complaint.

Police stopped Crull as he drove east on Main Street in Evansville and noticed his speech was slurred and eyes were glassy and bloodshot. Crull initially told police he was driving to Piggly Wiggly, but then later told them he was driving to the bowling alley to get a burger, according to the complaint.

Crull had been charged in Rock County Court with intoxicated driving the previous week in connection with an April 13 incident, according to court records.

Both charges were filed as Crull’s fourth offense because he has not yet been convicted of either.

A signature bond filed in the April 13 offense mandated that Crull not operate a motor vehicle, consume intoxicants or commit any crime, which police say he violated in the April 20 incident, according to court documents.

Crull has previous intoxicated-driving convictions from 1999 and 2002 twice.
