A 30-year-old man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of driving under the influence after crashing into several cars and a home in a Brownstown Township trailer park, police said.

The incident took place about 5:20 a.m. in the Tela-Valley Mobile Home Park, east of Telegraph and north of Sibley.

Police were alerted to a disruptive presence in the neighborhood of a car driving around hitting vehicles with his silver 2003 Lincoln Navigator.

It didn’t take long for officers who responded to locate the suspect, who was pulled over and arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. The man voluntarily submitted to a blood draw, said Deputy Chief Robert Matthews of the Brownstown Township Police Department.

Four vehicles and a mobile home were hit, Matthews said.

The man was arrested on the scene and given a citation, Matthews said, but was also transported to a hospital for his injuries. He was released on a personal bond but still in the hospital at last report, Matthews said.

His vehicle was towed and processed, and the owner is permitted to get it from police impound. Since the suspect has a prior alcohol-related conviction on his record, police seized the vehicle’s metal license plate, and the vehicle was given a paper license plate instead.

No information on the suspect’s arraignment was immediately available as of Monday.
