(KNSI) - A 43 year old Rice man is under arrest for suspected drunk driving after a crash early Tuesday morning.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says the man called police saying his Ford Expedition had gone off the road and hit a power pole.

The crash happened on County Road 2 and 421st Street in Brockaway Township just after 2 a.m.

When officers arrived, they found the pole had been sheared off and power lines strung across the road. The pole belongs to Stearns Electric.

The man was not hurt in the crash.

Officers say he displayed signs of impairment and upon further investigation arrested him for suspected drunk driving.

It is KNSI's policy not to name suspects until they have been formally charged.
