NEW BOSTON - A Perry County commissioner was charged with drunk driving early Sunday after a one-vehicle accident on Indiana 545 north of New Boston.
Louis J. "Jody" Fortwendel, 57, of 16870 Avery Ridge Road, Tell City, was lodged in the Spencer County Jail on charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and with an open container of alcohol.
Fortwendel, the county's District 3 commissioner, was released later the same day and offered a public apology Tuesday, saying he accepted full responsibility for his actions.
