NORWICH – New York State Police arrested an armed Norwich man for drunk driving Friday after he got in an accident with a stolen pick-up.
State Police Sgt. Elizabeth R. Wonka said the incident began Friday afternoon when a Town of Norwich resident complained that an unknown man in a pick-up truck was intentionally destroying his lawn. The victim told police the truck was spinning its tires and performing other erratic maneuvers.
“The trooper was investigating a criminal mischief complaint involving destroyed property; a resident complained a vehicle was in his yard, destroying it and ‘doing donuts,’” said Wonka. She added that the victim in the case did not appear to have a personal relationship with the defendant.
