If you witness a crime, here’s what to do
A man has been charged with property damage and driving while intoxicated after he allegedly crashed into the front of the Lee’s Summit Police Department building Monday.
According to Jackson County prosecutors, Estakio J. Alfons, 43, drove to the parking lot of the department’s headquarters and stopped his Jeep facing the front of the building. Prosecutors allege he then accelerated, drove between two rock barriers and struck the building. After driving back into the building, he reversed the vehicle and was confronted by officers who had exited the building.
They detected an alcohol odor and the driver’s breath was sampled. The test found a blood alcohol concentration of 0.179. The legal limit is 0.08.
Alfons was charged with felony property damage and a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated.
Prosecutors have requested a $10,000 bond.
The front entrance to the police department and the municipal court was temporarily closed while officials checked the safety of the structure.
