(West Harrison, Ind.) – A Dearborn County political candidate is in jail accused of Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated.

Dennis “Denny” Winia was arrested following a reported accident on Losecamp Road, just off Jamison Road, in West Harrison Saturday evening. A Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department activity report listing the accident did not indicate any injuries involved.

The 47-year-old Bright resident remains in jail Monday morning on a charge of Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated (Class A misdemeanor).

Winia, a Dearborn County deputy coroner, is one of two Republican candidates in the May 6 primary election for Harrison Township Trustee in Dearborn County.
