December 10, 2012

A man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of drunk driving after plowing his car into Kuntz Memorial Soccer Stadium. A witness said he saw a green Cadillac driving eastbound on West 16th Street about 3:15 a.m. directly into oncoming traffic before crashing. The driver, Santonio Rivers of Indianapolis, was uncooperative, had bloodshot eyes and disheveled clothing, and smelled of alcohol, police said. The stadium, home to IUPUI’s soccer team and the annual high school soccer championships, sustained $50,000 in damage.
