ROTTERDAM -- A Rotterdam man has been charged with driving drunk after he got his car stuck on a utility pole's guy wire Friday night, police said.
The incident happened on Fourth Street in Rotterdam at about 7:15 p.m., between George Endries Drive and Fifth Street, police spokesman Lt. Jeffrey Collins said.
Responding officers and firefighters found the black SUV with its rear end on the ground and front end suspended in the air, Collins said. The driver was out of the vehicle, but the car was still running. The driver was not injured.
The Carman Fire Department assisted at the scene and posted photos of the crash on its Facebook page.
Eric Holoboski, 32, of Rotterdam, was found to be driving with a blood alcohol content greater than 0.18 percent, Collins said. He faces a aggravated driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and failure to keep right charges.
Holoboski was released to return to court later.
The Carman Fire Department also took photos of the operation to recover the vehicle from the guy wire: Two Interstate Northeast trucks -- a flat bed and one with a crane system -- lifted the vehicle from its front and back to put it on the flatbed truck.
