WYANDOTTE – A 25-year-old Wyandotte man drove off intoxicated the night of Jan. 10, despite efforts to stop him, and crashed into a house, then a parked car, before he was arrested.
Dakota Wolf Hines, a habitual offender, entered his vehicle, despite his girlfriend’s attempt to dissuade him, and sped away, driving with a suspended license and no proof of insurance for his vehicle, police said.
He accelerated down the 1000 block of 7th Street, lost control and crashed into a house, causing an estimated $60,000 in damage.
Hines then left the scene, and crashed his damaged car into a nearby parked car. He fled once more, but was quickly found by police in a nearby alley with his damaged vehicle.
He was arraigned Jan. 12 in 27th District Court for operating while intoxicated, his third offense, which is a felony; operating while his license was suspended, his second or subsequent offense; driving without proof of insurance; and his fourth notice for being a habitual offender. Hines was issued a $25,000 cash bond.
