If you’re going to get drunk and run your truck into somebody’s house, maybe you should make sure it isn’t the Governor’s house! That’s what happened to Alexander Oliphant, 49, though, and we have a feeling he’s going to be hearing about this for a long time to come.
The cops arrested a drunk driver who struck the back of the Governor’s Mansion in Alaska with his truck and damaged the home’s garage door. But before they realized that he had hit the Governor’s house, they found Oliphant sitting in his car with his dog. The car was lodged in a construction fence outside the Capitol. On top of it all, he refused to take a breath test, even though cops could smell booze strongly coming from the vehicle and his breath.
After talking to him at the construction site, Oliphant also told them that he struck the Governor’s Mansion and left. Luckily, the Governor was home during the incident but not disturbed.
Nobody was injured during the incident, but Oliphant did have to turn his dog over to Animal Control. The investigation continues and additional charges are likely and pending.
