ELKHART — A new page on features a map of OWI arrests within Elkhart County.

The map shows the location of arrests involving a preliminary charge of operating while intoxicated since Jan. 1, 2013, with color markers indicating the certified blood alcohol content of the driver. If police records did not indicate a certified BAC test, the map will show a zero percent certified BAC. It is the policy and practice of The Elkhart Truth to not report BAC test results that are not indicated as certified.

Other information displayed includes the names, ages and city of residence for arrested drivers and additional preliminary charges.

The information is compiled from records sent by the law enforcement agencies of Elkhart, Goshen, Middlebury and Elkhart County. Individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

The map will be updated as the information is received.
