An alleged drunken driver wearing a T-shirt with the phrase "This guy needs a beer" was arrested after crashing his car in front of the Kensington Police Department in New Hampshire on Friday night.
Joshua Tackett, 29, of Seabrook was charged with driving while intoxicated following the crash that happened just before 9pm. Police Chief Scott Sanders was on duty at the time but wasn't at the station when Tackett lost control of a Chevy Cruz.
He drove through a stonewall and a granite post before after striking a utility pole and getting tangled up the in the pole's guide wires.
His vehicle sustained major damage. The stonewall and granite post were also heavily damaged.
Tackett suffered minor injuries and refused medical treatment at the scene.
Sanders said it appears speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.
"He's incredibly lucky he wasn't seriously injured and fortunate another vehicle wasn't involved or it could have been catastrophic," Sanders said.
Tackett was released on $750 personal recognise bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on April 27 in the Brentwood Circuit Court.
