A truck driver from Ontario was arrested on drug charges in Gibson County.

Authorities say on Wednesday, June 30th, Gibson County Central Dispatch received a report of a semi-tractor trailer swerving on US 41. The call reported that the trailer was unable to maintain its lane of travel.

Authorities say the semi was traveling southbound from Princeton.

According to reports, an officer saw the vehicle on US 41 near County Road 100 West and attempted to conduct a traffic stop.

Authorities say the driver refused to stop and continued southbound.

The driver was eventually pulled over with assistance from another officer at County Road 550 South.

The driver was identified as 35-year-old Sandeep Singh of Brampton, Ontario.

Reports say a roadside investigation found drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance inside the semi-tractor.

Authorities say Singh was placed into custody and taken to the Gibson County Jail.

Singh is facing several charges including Resisting Law Enforcement-Fleeing, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Singh has since posted a $1,500 bond.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
