      A drunk driver crashed into a home early Sunday morning after leaving a rave party in Mecosta County.

      According to the Michigan State Police, the vehicle appeared to have gone airborne after hitting a ditch and landed in the homeowner's yard. The driver continued to drive and then crashed into the front porch deck of the home.

      Three drunk adult males were involved in the crash. Police say the driver had driven off the roadway of E. Main St. and into a residence that was on the north side of the street.

      The males admitted to all have been drinking and told the Troopers that they were coming from the rave party on 70th Ave.

      The driver was arrested after sobriety tests were conducted.

      The driver was asked to take a Chemical Breath Test Analysis that showed he had a 0.12 BAC level.

      The driver is behind bars in the Mecosta County Jail with pending charges of 'operating while intoxicated as well as no operator's license on person'.

      The accident is estimated to have caused a couple thousand dollars in damages to the home and the totaled vehicle.

      No injuries were reported. The homeowners were contacted by phone about the crash.
