Cheboygan Police Arrest Drunk Driver for Property Damage, Fire Hydrant Struck

Cheboygan police arrested a man they say hit a house with the truck he was driving.

Last week police say the man hit a fire hydrant before crashing into a porch and a home.

The home’s porch and a window were damaged as well as the suspect’s truck.

Police say Duane Olson ran from the crash.

Those who live nearby say the crash made a loud boom that scared everyone in the neighborhood.

"I was watching TV a little bit after 10 ‘o clock in the evening and I heard a big explosion and I said ‘my god somebody’s bombing us,’ you know?" neighbor Ed Pyrzynski said.

Olson is now charged with operating while impaired and two counts of failing to report property damage.
