On October 28, 2018, at 10:39 p.m. Deputy Austin Farrington conducted a traffic stop on a Silver 2001 Lexus for speeding on US 41 near Oak Street in Fort Branch. Upon approaching the vehicle Deputy Farrington identified the driver as 30 year old Robert Compton of Evansville. During a roadside investigation Deputy Farrington ran Mr. Compton through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and discovered that Mr. Compton’s Operators license was suspended on a prior conviction.
