GOBLES (WKZO) -- Deputies say he crashed into a church and then lied about it. 35-year-old Jason Ketcham has been charged with failing to report a property damage crash and drunk driving.
Deputies were dispatched after a neighbor called that he was awakened by the sound of a truck crashing into the Journey Family Church on Depot Street in Gobles early Friday morning.
Deputies found the truck had caused substantial damage to the church, but the driver was no where to be found. They checked the registration and went to the owner’s home.
He denied driving the truck but was also very intoxicated and uncooperative. A K-9 tracked a trail from the accident scene to the suspect’s home.
He was released on his own recognizance and ordered to appear in court on June 25th for his next hearing.
