A man has been charged with driving under the influence and vandalism after he allegedly drove through multiple yards and two fences in east Nashville early Monday morning.
According to an affidavit, Pedro Gutierrez drove an SUV through a six-foot iron fence and then a four-foot chain link fence surrounding a home on the 1600 block of Lischey Avenue.
Both fences were destroyed.
Officers found Gutierrez, 23, hiding in some bushes at the home and he admitted to driving the vehicle, according to the arrest warrant.
Police said Gutierrez performed poorly on field sobriety tests and told them he drank six beers.
Gutierrez was given a breathalyzer test once he was booked into jail and blew a .233, which is almost three times the legal limit.
Two cold and unopened bottles of Bud Light were found inside the vehicle on the passenger floorboard.
The vehicle was towed to an impound lot.
Gutierrez was also charged with not having a driver’s license and leaving the scene of an accident after causing property damage.
His bond was set at $10,000 and he is scheduled to be in court Friday, May 30.
