GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A South Dakota man is charged with driving drunk through freshly poured concrete in downtown Gillette, causing up to $1 million in damages.
The Gillette News Record reports 31-year-old Bobby Rice of Belle Fourche was bound over to District Court on charges of felony destruction of property. He also faces charges of drunken driving, reckless driving, failure to obey posted traffic signs and not having a license, insurance or current registration. His next court appearance is Dec. 8.
Rice was arrested early Sept. 10. Court records say construction workers reported someone drove a pickup around a barricade and traveled for a block in the wet concrete before making a U-turn and traveling back over more freshly poured concrete "hooting, hollering, yelling and screaming" out the window the whole time.
Charging documents say Rice's blood-alcohol was 0.17 percent.
