TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - A Terre Haute bar faces multiple charges for allegedly serving two already intoxicated, underage patrons who crashed their vehicle into another car after leaving the establishment.
On March 18, police say Jacob Hubbard and Kristopher Hedden, both 20, went to the Highway 40 Sports Bar and Grill after already having 12 beers each.
At the bar, police say Hubbard showed his military ID and Hedden displayed Hubbard's dog tags, both of which showed his age as under 21, and were subsequently served by the bartender.
Hubbard and Hedden allegedly each ordered a total of six beers, four shots of Jack Daniel's Whiskey and two shots of Jameson Whiskey at the bar.
Upon leaving, police say Hubbard ran a stop sign and crashed his 2007 Ford Mustang into a vehicle driven by a mother with her 8-month old baby, trapping both vehicles' occupants inside.
After emergency crews extricated all of the occupants, a blood draw conducted on Hubbard showed his BAC at .29 percent – almost four times the legal limit.
Hubbard was arrested on preliminary charges of battery by bodily waste, intimidation, operating while intoxicated endangering a person and illegal consumption.
Highway 40 Sports Bar and the bartender who served the men face preliminary charges of selling alcohol to a minor, allowing a minor to loiter and sale of alcohol to an intoxicated person.
