Pinehills man hits garage, gets arrested for drunk driving

A Pinehills man was arrested for driving under the influence after allegedly crashing into a garage door, Sunday night.

According to Captain John Rogers, Eric Gardner, 41, of Ridge was visiting a friend at Kensington when the crash occurred at around 7 p.m. He allegedly pulled into a neighboring driveway too fast, hitting the garage door and damaging it, Rogers said. A neighbor reportedly found Gardner passed out in the car, he said.

Gardner was charged with OUI liquor and wanton destruction of property over $250. He was also charged with OUI drugs, since he allegedly had overmedicated on prescription drugs, Rogers said.
