One North Stafford fire hydrant was destroyed due to the driving behavior of a 21-year-old Arizona man.

On September 17th at approximately 9:06 p.m. Deputy J.A. Martin responded to the intersection of Garrisonville Road and Doc Stone Road for a single vehicle crash. The caller advised the driver drove up onto the curb, and struck a fire hydrant. They further advised the driver poured out a can of an unknown liquid immediately after the crash.

Deputy Martin made contact with the driver who had glassy, bloodshot eyes and the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. On top of admitting to drinking prior to driving, multiple cans of alcoholic beverage were located all throughout the vehicle.

The driver was charged with driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content between .15 and .2. He was held until sober.
