Early morning in Springfield Oregon a suspected drunken driver fled to a popular strip club after he allegedly crashed his car into city property police said.
Cops arrested Noah Nelson Eiler, 29, found bloodied and impaired inside the Brick House Gentleman's Club on Fourth and A streets shortly after the crash, Springfield police Lt. Scott McKee said.
According to witnesses Eiler was driving his car along the city's historic Main Street around 1:30 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle and then plowed through a fire hydrant and a pair of decorative light posts, totaling his 2007 Ford Edge and scattering the municipal property across the road.
The suspect then allegedly left the scene of the orange-colored wreck in the middle of Seventh and Main streets and fled by foot to the Brick House just a few blocks away which is directly across the street from the Springfield Police Department.
Police booked Eiler into the Springfield Municipal Jail and charged him on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving and hit and run.
