LARCHWOOD—A 44-year-old rural Inwood man was arrested about 11:50 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, on a charge of first-offense operating while under the influence.

The arrest of Gary Dale Van Veldhuizen stemmed from the stop of a 2003 Dodge Ram after it was observed traveling erratically at the intersection of highway 182 and 9 south of Larchwood, according to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office.

Van Veldhuizen had the odor of an alcoholic beverage and slurred speech and failed preliminary field sobriety tests, according to court documents. He also admitted to have been drinking.
