      Man crashes car into ditch then breaks into nearby house

      A 30 year old man from Lake, Michigan is facing several charges after crashing his car early Saturday morning then breaking into a nearby house in Isabella County.

      At around 4:40am Saturday morning Isabella County Sheriff's Deputies tell 7&4 News they were called out to a house near Nottawa road just north of Vernon Road in Gilmore Township on reports of a break-in.

      The homeowner was hiding in a closet with her daughter and niece and told 9-11 dispatchers that a man had kicked-in her door and was lying on the floor.

      Deputies say the man had crashed his car into a ditch before breaking into the house.

      Alcohol was a factor in the crash and the incident remains under investigation.

      The suspect is facing charges of Operating While Intoxicated and Burglary-Forced Entry.
