WIND GAP, Pa. (AP) — Police in Pennsylvania say a group of children and adults in an above-ground pool barely managed to scramble out of the water before a drunken driver plowed into it.

Lehighvalleylive.com says court documents describe a virtual one-man demolition derby in Wind Gap on June 13. Police say Dean Tomsic rammed into multiple items around properties near his neighborhood and dragged his girlfriend alongside the truck when she tried to take his keys.

Tomsic is charged with aggravated assault, making terroristic threats, DUI, disorderly conduct, driving with a suspended license and reckless driving.

Police say they were called to neighborhood for a report of a seemingly drunk driver crashing into objects and possibly running over a woman.

They say Tomsic eventually got stuck in a dirt embankment, but wrestled with officers trying to arrest him.

No attorney information is listed.
