ASHLEY, Ind. (WPTA) - A former Olympian and current girls volleyball coach at Angola High School was arrested and charged with drunk driving Friday evening.

Police said Lloy Ball, 51, was operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

According to the Ashley-Hudson Police Department, officers were notified of an impaired driver traveling north on I-69. Officers said they found the vehicle matching the description near the Ashley-Hudson exit.

Police said they followed the vehicle and saw it weaving within the lane multiple times. Authorities suspected the driver was drunk and initiated a traffic stop. Ball agreed to a chemical test and the results showed he had a blood alcohol level above the legal limit.

Ball was taken into custody and charged with one count of operating while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content greater than .15. Police also added an endangerment charge.

This is not the first time Ball has faced charges like this. Court documents show he faced two separate misdemeanor charges in 1993 and 2011.
