Miguel Magana- House Owner
“On Saturday, I was inside my house. I had just reached from my farm and asked my wife to make me some coffee because I was exhausted. So while she was making the coffee, I heard a big “BANG’ and I came outside to investigate. That’s when I saw the gate destroyed, the curtain destroyed and the car jammed inside tha garage. However, I didn’t see the guy that was driving the vehicle because he wasn’t in the car. He had already left. I called my wife to come outside and see the damage. So I decided to call the police to see the damage that has been caused and they arrived about 20 miniutes after I called. “
Evidently, there was a beer bottle inside the vehicle and first responders say the driver was having difficulty standing up straight. When police arrived at the scene, the driver had left the area. However, according to police, the driver made his way towards the police station thereafter and gave police his statement. A urine sample was taken from the driver as police continue to investigate all possible angles. The owners of the house have indicated that they will be suing.//
